Thank you for your replies.
I was under the impression textmate snipplets were drop in functionality for Sublime - this is one of the main reasons I'm interesting in purchasing sublime. Perhaps I should look at something like E that has actual support for textmate snippets.
So, from what I understand, it needs to be in the correct scope. Not too big of a deal. Will other snippets work though? Such as PHP, etc?
RE: Github conversion - thats great, but I was hoping they would work out of the box. Thank you for the link though.
What about PHP, Python, and Ruby? I use those all the time...
