[TxMt] LaTeX Bundle and Terminal

I'm using TextMate a lot for Latex - it a great editor and bundle for  
that. I have one question:

How can I open a terminal, or go to a pre-existing terminal window,  
from TextMate, and then run a given shell script in the terminal, in  
particular a shell script that would typeset the master document?

One reason I want to do this is that the latex bundle seems to typeset  
in nonstop mode. If there is an error, it highlights it but keeps on  
running if possible. This is not always optimal, as one would  
sometimes like to be able to press the 'h' key and see what help TeX  
can offer in finding the error. One could do this easily from a  
terminal, and it would be nice to call this with a keystroke from  
TextMate. It is presumably possible to modify the LaTeX bundle to do  
this from the console - and perhaps this is already doable but I don't  
know? But in any case, I'd still like to be able to open a terminal  
window as above.
