Looks like a good coverage of the basics.  The reason I'd like to see
the highlighting work with the function names is that it reduces some
need to bring up documentation just to look up function names.  

If the highlighting were to become a bit more powerful/efficient, it
seems that it should be possible to write a script that would convert
all of vi's color files into a format that nano could use.  But maybe
that's getting past the scope of what nano wants to do?  (None of which
is meant to knock nano... it's still the only editor I've ever actually
