With so many different places properties can be set it's often difficult 
to track down exactly which one has precedence. This problem is similar 
to CSS in which styles can be overridden by other style sheets.  Just to 
add to the growing list of feature requests, can something like 
Firebug's CSS browser be implemented for .tm_properties?

Here's a screenshot for anyone who's unfamiliar with Firebug. In the 
actual tool you can mouse-over the filename to see the full path. For a 
TM equivalent you could replace the HTML tags with applicable scope names.
