Exporting everything that is different from the Textmate default version of the bundle.

So if the user edited a few commands, and created some new ones in (for instance the html bundle), this command would figure out which they were and export them to a new bundle.

The user would then have a “clean”  html bundle, able to be kept up to date by textmate.

I was trying to convey what the command would do. If the user had a forked version of a bundle that they were working on, and wanted to save their modifications from this fork into a new bundle and revert to the tracked Textmate version, this command would let them do so without losing their modifications, and without having to track these down one by one, which could be a pain if they were extensive.
