AIUI, textmate's internal engine was written specifically to support this
kind of nested mode well, so it's not surprising that it does so.  Emacs
does not have this sort of special support.

So if you compare them in that specific case, textmate looks pretty
good.  However it's far from clear that textmate would fare as well in a
more general comparison.
