You only need `font-lock-add-keywords'. If you read
the documentation, you find out that what I did is
exactly what it does! That way you also find out
I didn't do anything else and the requires are
unrelated. See?

It is rather to be able to solve simple problems by
examining code and documentation peace and quiet and
not get discouraged at the first unknown encounter.

But I like "fontlock technicolor" :) Exactly.

OK:

    http://user.it.uu.se/~embe8573/captain-mr-king.el

Invoke:

    emacs -Q -l captain-mr-king.el captain-mr-king.el

Well, this isn't exactly an example of Lisp being
a "programmable programming language". This is an
example of Emacs being programmable in Elisp as well
as a tool to write Elisp. The difference might (?) get
subtile down below. The example that would prove the
point should rather be a macro that changes the syntax
of Lisp, for example `dotimes' - myself, I'm not
a macro writer tho I use them (sometimes). Of course
you may still use this example in any way you like.
