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.
