Out of general curiosity here...

My probe to the Interarchy developer..
      Textmate and Interarchy communicate via the ODB Editor Suite
      so it should have the remote url. There may be some way to
      affect Textmate such that it displays this URL...

      I recommend contacting Macromate's support. They might be able
      to point you in the right direction.

I assume TM uses the ODB Editor suite, meaning that I should be able  
to get to the info?  You mentioned parsing the display name, is this  
the same thing?  Where can I see this display name?

Just for kicks, as I remember this from BBEdit, I set my editor to  
TextWrangler, and inspired an edit from Interarchy, at the top of the  
window in TextWrangler, I see:
	File-path: ftp://username:@example.com/file.php

Can you elaborate on the "custom display name" and how to get to it,  
or point me to any helpful docs about it?  Or is this something that  
is not user accessible in 1.x?

This is all I have found:	
Who makes the "ODB Editor Suite", is this an Apple API, there seems to  
be some confusion for me in who this api was made by.

Thank you Allan, I appreciate you taking the time to reply to this one.
