Did you test the excellent snippetsEmu? How do the two compare?

The main difference is that snipmate is more robust when you are within a snippet, whereas snippetsEMU requires you to tab through the snippet before you can edit it. In other words, snippetsEMU gets confused if you enter and exit insert mode while processing a snippet. Also, the built-in completions for snipmate are simpler and the menu that allows you to choose multiple options for a given completion is nice so you don't have to remember a list of prefix words. Otherwise, they are very similar.
