This is not so far from a more general question about syntactic
extensions and IDE I have been having in mind for some time.

What does need an editor to be able to colorize files using syntax

Some ideas:

- it would have to know wich syntax extension is used in each
  file. Until know, this knowledge is at building tools level? Would
  it be a good idea to move this information inside the files.

- there should be some extension of the colorisations rules, also?
  Depends on the IDE?

Well would it be possible (and enough) or something to much difficult
to add some more simple tools that would help any IDE?
Like -dtypes does, for example.
I mean simple tools that would make editors mode more simple to
write (especially emacs, since this is the one I tend to use ;-)
