Well, if I set my theme to style comment.line, and the Perl.tmbundle
has a comment.line entry, then shouldn't a parsed item in a perl file
be colored and parsed correctly? What technical purpose does the
final .perl serve? Or do we read scope from it (that would be weird...)?
Basically, I don't understand how in the new scheme the language
element name hierarchy interacts with scope. I doubly don't
understand how nested languages act. I don't have strong feelings
about it... I just want to be cooperative.
