The not hard-core programming matlab users are most likely happy with
Matlab's editor and the close integration it has. ;-)
You can also use an octave shebang line (if you use octave).
For cases like this (where different lexers/languages have the same
file extensions) I once did a check in set_buffer_properties whether a
certain keyword was in the file and switched the lexer language
accordingly, for example Django templates that have .html-Extensions.
