It would be great to have syntax highlighting in Lister:

Feature: Syntax highlighting

Lister would have to read the entire file from the beginning for correct syntax
highlighting. Why? Immagine the situation where the file starts with a
"start comment" sign. Then the entire file up to the next "end comment"
sign would be a comment! That's why reading only a small part of the file
(as lister currently does) wouldn't be sufficient.
