Mine does. (More exactly, I don't use it.) Colors confuse me, because
they give a fixed interpretation for things that, for me, may have
different interpretations depending on what I am thinking [*].

Lua programs are text. Syntax highlight is not (yet) part of the
text. Text that needs special tools to be read has a bad smell to me.

[*] Simple example: should 'int' and 'size_t', in C, have the same color?
