Syntax Support For JavaCC

Has any thought been given to syntax support for JavaCC Grammar files? You know, those funky .jj and .jjt parser files.

I don't know how popular JavaCC is with the real world, but in my little corner, it gets used a lot.

The syntax is complicated and very difficult to read w/o some kind of color-coding. If there's anything the IDEA folks could do on this front, it would be greatly appreciated.

ps, seeing syntax support and default coloring styles for shell scripts would be nice too.

The syntax support feature request was open long time ago, but not
started I think, since there are more important things to do before

Ditto for ANTLR's .g files. I've got custom syntax highlighting defined
but it really, really needs proper syntax highlighting and some
navigation support (Ctrl-B, etc.) would be really nice as well.

But I'm not holding my breath ;)
