[code] Lexer creation problem.

lexer.word_match() acts in a way that's a bit puzzling to me and I'm trying
to work out how to get around it. The issue is this: if I have a token
defined as, say lexer.word_match({"NE"}), this works as expected. "NE" is
properly highlighted in my file. FOO BAR NE BAZ has FOO, BAR, and BAZ not
highlighted and NE highlighted. Perfect. Until I feed it FOO BAR FINE
BAZ. Then NE is again highlighted. Which is really not how one generally
wants for keyword highlighting.

So ... how do I nicely have keywords that are highlighted only when they're
standing alone?
