There isn’t much between one and two lines. One line is 16 pixels, so 
two will be around 32 pixels and the icon is presently 32 × 32, which 
is a good choice since it’s one of the sizes that icons are normally 
drawn at (i.e. no bitmap scaling, although presently some of 
TextMate’s own icons need to be redone in the larger resolution).

So if anything, we should go back to a single line: Reading the items 
with a single line does seem easier.

The advatage of the two lines though is that we can always rank against 
full path, and for anyone with many identically named files, 
disambiguating them is easier. Also the extra space, take e.g. the 
recent changes in ⌃⌘T which had been pending a “larger canvas”.

I’ll probably introduce a toggle between one and two lines, but I want 
the two line mode to be stable before introducing multiple display

This will be fixed in next build.
