[TxMt] Easy way to open and see two files in a project at once?

Working in a TM project, I often have this problem:
I want to compare code with another file in the project. I want to
see them both at once; possibly to edit one or the other or both.
Then I find I can only look at one of the files at a time - the
second file always opens in place of the first one, inside the
project. I have to trust my memory about what the first file said.
Bad idea, usually. :-)
My current workaround is to create a new document, and copy code from
the second file into it, so it can float beside the project. But this
is a poor replacement for two active windows; takes several steps,
and only one of the files can be edited actively.
I could also close the project, and open both files. Again, a poor workaround.
Is there any other way?
If not, is there anyone else who'd agree this would be a nice feature for 2.0?
Especially this happens with CSS cascade files, where I need to
choose how the same parameters are controlled at different levels.
