Adding IcedCoffeeScript highlighting to IDEA

I want to add syntax highlighting for IceCoffeeScript to my already CoffeeScript-highlighted files...

The thing is, I had to add the .iced extension to the CoffeeScript file type to get Coffeescript highlighting, so I can't add a new File type for it... Is there a way to add support for that in another way?

IceCoffeeScript basically just adds the new keywords "await" and "defer," so it seems like it should be fairly simple...

IntelliJ IDEA's syntax highlighting has a complete parser and syntax tree for the language. Because of that, supporting a language extension is not a matter of "just" adding a couple of keywords; all the rest of the plugin functionality needs to be made aware of that. Because of that, it''s not possible for a user to extend the highlighting performed by a plugin.
