Re: Next generation of lexers

I've created an issue in Google Code for this.

I use LaTeX and various extension packages such as Beamer. The list of
environments and commands is never going to be complete enough to
highlight arbitrary Tex/LaTeX documents, so I think your solution of using

local command = token('keyword', '\\' * l.word)

is a good one.

Somewhat related: Can these please be fixed in time for 2.2?
