not a direct solution, but I've been using SVN for this.

I have a repository containing my default files and file structure.  
(for a web site)

I export it to a 'new project' folder, tweak filenames if necessary  
(this becomes my upload copy location), then create a repository for  
the project, import the upload copy and checkout a working copy to my  
dev environment. This is the editable 'files under version control' -  
I then drag this folder to TM, save as a project and start work.

edits are committed as appropriate and uploadable copies of the files  
are exported from the repository to the 'live' version folder.
