Thanks for pointing this out. I will check this and then post some
experience and maybe some questions... ;)

Thats true! The sync feature is absolute great. At the moment I stick
to Smultron, because I am working on my thesis and this is quite a
big project and I realy love the left panel with all the documents
ready for picking. I also think that syntax highliting is a bit
better for me in Smultron, but I think, it TS would provide a proper
project handling I It would be hard for Smultron to stay as the first
