Oh, man. Are we going to have to hit 'a' or 'i' to get into INSERT  
mode in TextMate? ;)

Sounds like a good enough reason to me. Personally, I like the "type a  
few characters" trick Hans just mentioned better than ⌘1, but from  
your description, that's going to quit working as well under Snow  
Leopard. Too bad.
