QtCreator-style block highlighting (and colours) in Kate(part)?

Hi René,

my take on this is rather simple: I don't directly see the value in this
feature, so investing a significant amount of time is out of scope. I
believe this is valid for other Kate developers as well, especially since
we have more important issues to solve (finish port to KSyntaxHighlighting
framework to use its Themes for instance). That said, it won't happen,
except if someone provides a (good/clean!) patch... :)

PS: the better place for this discussion is kwrite-devel at kde.org.

Best regards
