I disagree (not with Nick, of course, but with the point of view).
There are probably a lot of Stata users out there who rely on Stata's
own editor. It doesn't bloat an editor to make it do syntax
colouring. And colouring would help the people who most need it -
beginners who are getting to grips with writing Stata code.
The word is that syntax highlighting is not going to happen. It
conflicts with the idea(l) of -doedit- as a minimal editor and
arguably the people who want it most are already using serious
editors. (Don't shoot the messenger on this one!)
