[TxMt] Xcode template: general TextMate plugin

while writing the GoToLastEdit plug-in I thought about to have a Xcode  
template which set up a general TextMate plug-in.

Attached is such a template.

To install it simply download it, decompress it, and copy it e.g. into:

/Developer/Library/Xcode/Project Templates/Application Plug-in

Then launch Xcode, choose "New Project" > Category "Application Plug- 
in", and enter an unique and adequate name.

You can then simply build it and restart TextMate. Hopefully you will  
find a new menu item "ExamplePluginMenuItem" in TM's Window submenu.  
If you invoke it, the plugin will reload all bundles, add a bookmark  
to line 1, and show an alert with some information.

The template creates a basic skeletal structure based of the chosen  
project name with a NIB containing the menu item definition. In  
addition you will find in the header file a number of TextMate methods  
which could be useful as dummy declarations to avoid compiler  
warnings. After the build process the plug-in will be copied into ~/ 
Library/Application Support/TextMate/PlugIns.

Please note that this template will only work with TextMate 1.x, and  
it's set up as 32bit universal against SDK 10.5.

I tested it on some Macs, but only for 10.6. In other words feedback  
in welcome as usual :)

If it turns out that this template is useful and works I'll upload it to

If someone has further ideas how to enhance the template I'd be  
appreciated to get any suggestions.

Hopefully have fun.
