Feel free to add them

Sounds like a good idea, although all of those files would have the same 
mimetype/extension. We can't add highlightings for each database's SQL 
dialect, but I think there is no problem, if we add support for the some of 
the most used open source databases. The current sql highlighting is a 
littlebit Oracle centric, IIRC.

Feel free to split the file up for mysql and postgresql.

Kind regards
