Well, yes, I know about that.  I was hoping for something native to the 
language grammar (such as 'firstLineMatch') that wouldn't require a 
plugin.  From the docs it appears that TabMate still only scans the 
first line of the file, and the format seems fixed.  I'm after something 
more general like a regex parser.  A similar line used for vim rather 
than emacs looks like:

>  vim:tw=78:ts=8:ft=help:norl:

(Wrap at 78 columns, tabstops are 8 chars, filetype is "help", do not 
display as right-to-left)  And, just to be different, the vim convention 
is to place the modeline at the bottom of the file.
