I think the mode variable could be useful sometimes, and they are not
so many, are there good reasons to take away some of them?

Ok I tried with this
#!/usr/bin/env python
import webbrowser
import urllib2
from os import environ

lang = environ['TM_MODE'].lower()
QUERY="http://google.com/codesearch?q=" + environ['TM_CURRENT_WORD'] +
"++lang:" + lang
print urllib2.urlopen(QUERY).read()

And it works, but it stops working at the first click, maybe not supporting
frames or whatever it is in the details page of the source snippets?

Ok but now I'm working in my working directory (Bundles) with the default
via svn (BTW is it normal we're still at revision 10740 since a long time?)
Pristine Copy/Bundles.

This is the way suggested on the manual which is different from the way
for developers.. So what should I do, merge everything in the Bundles
folder? (and how?)

Some "suggestions", I love TM so I'd like to get it perfect:
I think it would be really nice to use a distributed control system
like darcs (http://darcs.net/) instead of svn, in such a "distributed"
project we could
have many nice features.

Frames (maybe already discussed) like in emacs or vim are very useful, I
didn't find
any nice way to use them.
Maybe also giving some more controls to the window positions would be useful

And for last thing I would really love to get a small line of input to
shell commands directly inside TM, useful whenever you need to launch
but you don't care about the output.
I know here it's everything is minimal (and that's why it's fantastic), but
it could be 
just activated with some key as the incremental search is, not really

The default behaviour could be show as tool tip only if you get some errors.
