Well, thank you for using nano.  :)

But I don't think this syntax is generally useful.  You see,
in former times users could easily comment out in /etc/nanorc
the syntaxes that they didn't need.  But since version 2.3.3
(commit 3814283) syntaxes are by default included through a
globbing pattern, which makes it much harder to exclude the
ones that a user doesn't need.  So I don't want to add any
syntaxes for files that are unlikely to exist on an average
Unixy system.
