Thanks so much for your contribution! I've included your run command,
syntax command, and error patterns in Textadept, so they are no longer
required in your language module's `init.lua`. SNOBOL4 support will show
up in tonight's nightly :)

All of Textadept's official language modules have autocompletion support,
so you can reference them if you'd like. The main thing to do is just
implement a `textadept.editing.autocompleters.snobol4` function[1] that
returns autocompletion info. See the API documentation for more details.
If you have any questions, please ask. Also, don't feel like implementing
autocompletion is a requirement :) It's completely up to you how much
you'd like to support that language. When you finish, I encourage you to
post it to the wiki!
