Actually, the more up-to-date code for that is in the GNU ELPA
repository (, AFAIK.
But it's also arguably easier to install (it's a simple `M-x
package-install` away).

And it offers a fair bit more than syntax highlighting.

There are Smalltalk support packages for most editors out
there, AFAICT.  I don't know how much support they provide beyond the
basic syntax highlighting, tho (indentation?).
