Hmm, I think for the symbol view it would be not that bad, given at 
least normally
it will perfectly fine translate the line moves and you don't need to 
trigger reparsing
that often at all. But it is nothing critical.

Yes, for that it would be much more important.

Dominik linked you some pull requests for some smaller changes, you 
could take a look at that.

If you have some further changes, it would be cool if you can push them,
I want to take a look if I could improve the highlight further ;=)
