hmm, since you select something anyway, one could think of selecting 'something' as well.

If 'something' consists of one word only then this _very fast written_ snippet should work:

select: "something a_method(with, arguments)"

and invoke that snippet

${1:variable} = `echo -ne "$TM_SELECTED_TEXT" | perl -pe 's/^\s*\w+\s*//'`
`echo -ne "$TM_SELECTED_TEXT" | perl -pe 's/^\s*(\w+)\s*.*/\1/'` ${1/\s*//}
