in reply to How Scheme and Perl Became Friends

For completeness, I want to post one more thing -- a syntax highlighting file for vim that understands this mix of Scheme and Perl. It's a testament to vim's good design that something like this could be implemented so easily. This should be showing up in the March 2002 issue of Linux Magazine, so consider this a sneak preview.
