i'd like to second that!

i'm/was a long time emacs/auctex user and while textmate's latex  
support doesn't (yet) offer what you get with auctex, textmate is an  
amazing editor. it takes some time getting used to it or  
understanding it's basic ideas (or discovering how much you can do  
with it) but right now, i'd say i'm sold and, unless its development  
should come to a hold, i can't imagine going back to emacs.
