I was looking in to adding this to TextMate. But the easiest solution 
would most likely be using bundles. In TextMate that's basically a 
script that gets executed when a hotkey is pressed. I mean, I can't 
really start and stop the sever each time the users press that key.

TextMate supports plugins as well, kind of. But it's quite cumbersome to 
write. I hasn't a real API, one uses method swizzling and observers to 
implement a plugin. It's a lot easier now when TextMate 2 is open source.

It also seems a bit unnecessary to have the server running as soon as 
the user opens TextMate. He/she might not even use the editor for D this
