Textmate Keymap not working on Macbook Keyboard (German Layout)

Hey out there!
I just tried to switch to RubyMine from Textmate because of all the great features. Unfortunatelly i was slowed down immediately as the Textmate Keymap obviously doesn`t completely work with German Keyboard Layout on my Apple Macbooks. For example i couldn`t use the following shortcuts:

text indent: ⌘ ]          which is on german keyboard layout: ⌘ ⌥ 6          ; "⌥ 6" converts to "]" as there is no plain first key with "]"

in textmate all the keymaps take the german keyboard layout into account and interprets the resulting key combination as the hit goal.
has anyone translate all these keymappings to german keyboard layouts on mac? is there a ticket filed for this problem?
or even an option for the mac available to get this sorted?

thanks for any help! without proper keymapping an editor is quite useless!

I think... adaption to textmate is really important, thats another reason why people of my nearer circle wont change to RM,
because of this productivity issue... I myself,... I like the features more,... so I changed... but I am much less productive then on textmate, though.

Any plans to approach more to textmate's keymaps?

Thnx for more information!
