I've also been wondering about this lately. Seems to me that scope
should handle anything interesting. Although the shorthand
("comment.line.perl" vs "source.perl comment.line") is convenient, I
don't think it's worth cluttering the language files.
I seem to recall adding the language suffixes before I knew how it
would interact with the scope system -- I wanted to be able to run
simple tools on the files to do mass conversions. (Or I might be
hallucinating. Long weekend, much inhaled drywall dust.)
