There is no support for this, it’s not that we don’t want to provide  
it, just that it’s not really feasible to do without bringing up a  
dialog and that would be a pain for the 99% where you don’t want to  
provide arguments.

What you can do is simply read from stdin then TextMate will show a  
dialog, this is how I handle it in most of my scripts, i.e. read the  
arguments from stdin instead of command line options (when I know I  
mostly run the script in TM).
