The port is going well, from what I see, there is no additional API
required, just the existing API has to work right. :-) However I'm
still in the "port the code" phase, and didn't have a chance to test

There is one important thing (in case this hasn't happend yet): All
the kate internal highlighting should use proper z-depth, according to
the depths we once defined on kwrite-devel, and then they should be
documented on the setZDepth function as reference.

Then we need the alpha-blending of overlapping ranges implemented, and
that should be enough.

Greetings, David
