Comment #3 on issue 1744 by chipx86: Custom syntax highlighting format

Defining a syntax highlighting grammar is a complicated task. You need a pretty thorough language to describe what things are highlighted when and where. That's not something that can really be done in an easy, user-configurable way. That's where Pygments comes in, since it provides a whole API for doing such a thing, but it does mean getting into the code and writing a lexer. It'd be nice if we could make it happen easily, but it's just not really an option.
