Sure, and I get good highlighting with SciTE as well (but not the last
'end' which is nifty).

But this form of highlighting is just driven by syntax, keywords,
strings, blocks, etc.  It does not look at your code and try to work
out whether a variable is a global or not. That's the hard part, to do
semantic analysis on code while it's being edited.
