- Subject: Rich text as Lua sources? :)

An old dream of mine, is to have programming (C/C++) sources being
able to have fonts, italics, colour, and even embedded diagrams or
This started in -92 using Borland C/C++ (when syntax highlight was
coming into editors), and I am still wondering, why no-one's "ever"
done it. Now, with Lua it wouldn't really be asking for much, to
modify the chunk loader to accept, say, RTF format.
Now, has anyone ever tried this, and would the coloring and embedding
possibilities actually pay back in "real life"? In a more "perfect
world" I could see function header comments actually be "fill me in"
spreadsheet tables that can be added at places (embedded objects).
It would be fun, but would it be useful, too?
