Would be nice to have syntax-coloring for those of us who have learned to like it.

To get improved curb appeal for potential NEW users of CCL this is important.

Reopened. We have comment and string coloring only. We're missing keyword, function name, variable name, and type name coloring. Also useful would be documented ways to customize the colors (assuming ticket #87 is addressed).

(In [15906]) Introduced a new convention: symbols exported from the HEMLOCK package are there for the IDE to use. Added a new hemlock file, display.lisp, which defines a set of such functions, mostly code that used to be in the IDE but had no actual Cocoa dependencies - we now have hemlock:update-current-package, hemlock:paren-matching-bounds, hemlock:selection-for-click, hemlock:move-point-for-click, and hemlock:compute-syntax-coloring.

New fn hemlock-ext:lookup-color maps a color description to a Cocoa color object. The current implementation is rudimentary, I'm hoping someone can make it more real.

Extended hemlock:compute-syntax-coloring to add coloring for symbols. This fixes ticket:125. To change how symbol colors get decided, you're most likely to want to modify some of:

hemlock::compute-symbol-category hemlock::defining-symbol-p hemlock::*lisp-code-colors*
