For anyone like me who is searching how to actually install 3rd party 
bundles into TM2, getting confused by the older posts here mentioning 
Avian folders and what not, here's my micro-summary how it currently 
worked for me, pretty easy, using Gerd's MultiMarkdown as an example:

1. Go to
~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Managed/Bundles

2. git clone git://github.com/gknops/MultiMarkdown.tmbundle.git
This creates the MultiMarkdown.tmbundle folder

3. Restart TM2
That's right, no cache deleting required, the MultiMarkdown bundle 
appeared both in the Bundle manager and in the list of installed 
bundles under Menu->Bundles.
Also, the multimarkdown command (that I installed with homebrew) was 
automatically found and used by the bundle.

As often, this turned out to be easier than I thought. ;)

Thx everybody,


PS.: Using TM2.0-alpha.9387 on 10.8.2
