At this point (unless TextMate 2.0 addresses the issue ;) I think  
MacFuse pretty much solves everything, so the single one change that  
I would like to see in textmate is a mechanism to stop and/or set  
intervals on the project directory scanning routine. I have no idea  
what that would entail or if it's even feasible, so forgive me Allan  
if what I'm saying is ludicrous... ;) That single change would make  
MacFuse usable on projects that have more than 5 files... and solve  
everything... no?
