[TxMt] Can TextMate be made to emulate VIMs eol behavior

hi there

I am a TextMate user in a primarily Vim development shop writing php
and html. Vim does this thing where it adds a new line to the end of
any files it saves. Here is an example, foo.txt was made with Vim,
foo2.txt was made the TextMate.

Desktop jachin$ vi foo.txt
Desktop jachin$ mate foo2.txt
Desktop jachin$ hexdump foo.txt
0000000 66 6f 6f 0a
Desktop jachin$ hexdump foo2.txt
0000000 66 6f 6f

Where this cases a problem is with subversion. We are starting to see
a lot of svn diffs with:

No newline at end of file

Files are showing up as modified that, for all practical purposes, are not.

One solution would be to just have all the Vim developers to :set
noeol, but Vim is the standard text editor here and all other text
editors must conform.

I was hoping TextMate would have a preference setting under "Text
Editing" or "Advanced"->"Saving".

Also one more wrinkle, sometimes, even the "Vimers", do not want that
final line break (in the case of some html files), so a perfect
solution would allow us to set this behavior on a file type basis.

Is there a way to hook into the save command through a bundle?

Are there any other ideas any one has for a solution?
