Correct that “Open Quickly…” is only showing last-recently-used 
for the current project.

But is this a problem in practice? And if so, does the “Open Recent” 
menu work for re-opening the document you accidentally closed?

This submenu is managed by the system (as part of its document recent 
list management), so I cannot add a “Last Document” proxy item at 
the top of this menu (which could then be assigned a shortcut), but I 
think that you can select the first item of this menu via AppleScript, 
which would give you a more universal “Open Last Document”.

Btw: for a proper “Open Last Document” TextMate should probably also 
support this for untitled documents or documents that had unsaved 
changes when they were closed. Though unsure how often such feature 
would be used.
