[TxMt] C Syntax

How would people feel about this diff in the C syntax bundle?
It will work on functions of the form:

main () {

but not on

int main()

What would be the appropriate regexp for making it work in both  
cases? What I'm trying to do is get the functions to show up in the  
Symbols menu.

The other thing that's broken with C is that #defines which are not  
functions are incorrectly marked as functions. For instance:

#define	FOOBAR	10

adds FOOBAR to the symbols menu. I think that's because the regexp  
that handles #defines tries to handle the case where the #define is  
really a macro

#define	MIN(a,b)	((a)<(b)?(a):(b))

but applies the name even if the syntax doesn't match... I'll take a  
look at this later this week if no one has a workaround...
