[TxMt] Automate new file creation and Save As not working

Let me start by saying that I couldn't live without TextMate...it's the 
one program that made my switch from the Windows world (a year and 
counting! :) ) permanent.  I have just a couple of issues I am looking 
for guidance on however.

Firstly, when building Wordpress themes for clients, I generally start 
with three files, for which I have my own custom TextMate templates.  I 
was wondering if there is a way to automatically create these three 
files (with correct filenames if possible) from my templates.  Ideally, 
this would be bound to a keystroke string (command-shift-N would be 
nice, since the muscle memory is already there for that string), but 
mousing it from the menu would work too.

I had first thought of using a macro, but apparently, you can't use a 
macro to create a new file.

Second, the keyboard shortcut for Save As stopped working some time 
ago.  I thought it might be an issue with a buggy install of Tiger, but 
even after upgrading to Leopard (via a clean install), I still don't 
have the ability to use the keyboard shortcut.  I'm pretty sure it's not 
a conflict with the keystroke string being redefined by a bundle or 
anything (I've gone through all the bundles I have active, and nothing 
is using it), so I'm at a loss.

Any ideas?
