Contrib: syntax-styling

This is an abbreviated version of a Fred syntax-styling utility.

Hemlock currently uses temporary text attributes, so styling is  
limited to color, and underlining.  I've added capitalization.  You  
can't mix fonts, font sizes, and font styles the way you could with  

There's no preference dialog and only one built-in style.  To develop  
your own style, hack the parameters at the top of syntax-styling- 

You'll need a newer Mac to use this.  Cocoa-Hemlock is shaping up to  
be a very capable Lisp editor, but it is just not as fast as old  
Fred.  This runs okay on a Core 2 Duo Mac Mini, 2.0 GHz, 4 GB.

If we get full font support with persistent text attributes, I'll see  
if it's possible to port the complete Fred utility, which does more  
styling than any reasonable human being would ever want.  This utility  
does a pretty decent job, though.  Maybe if I add a preference dialog,  
this will be sufficient.  This is beta.

To give it a try:

cd ccl/contrib/
svn update

(require :syntax-styling)
