[TxMt] javascript mootools bundle scope corrections

It seems like the mootools bundle wrongly scopes variables named the  
same as methods in mootools' classes as methods.

(make sure you use a theme like Blackboard which highlights js)

As you can see the map variable is highlighted, and wrongly scoped  
like support.class.array.js.mootools.

Unfortunately I'm still very new to TextMate language grammars and  
not very confident with mootols, so I'm not sure I'm in a position to  
file a patch. The way to fix this thought, I presume would be to look  
for a leading '.'(dot) instead of word boundary for all class  
methods. Something like:
match = '(?<=\.)(map|forEach|...)\b';

The mootools bundle is Joe Maller, is he still around here available  
to fix?
