  Imho the API is currently not clear enough, see comment below. Can we somehow resolve this?

Please improve the API documentation and add, for instance:

- Only existing keywordLists() can be changed. For non-existent keyword lists, false is returned.
- @see keywordList(), keywordLists()

What I am currently also missing is a section about highlight invalidation: Does one have to trigger a document rehighlight oneself, and if so, how?

My point is: Assume a doc is highlighted up to line 100. Now you add keywords to a list that are used in these 100 lines, i.e. the highlighting may change arbitrarily.

How is the KSyntaxHighlighting user supposed to trigger a rehighlight? Or should one only change keyword lists before highlighting any document?
