[TxMt] Language definition help

Hi all,

I've been working on a bundle for Stata and I've run into the
following problem.  Occationally in Stata one might want to load a
file in another directory.  For example

use ~/otherdata/bob.dta

I currently have the language definition set up so that use and
bob.dta are colored differently.

Now, if the path has a space in it, Stata would like the statement
with quotes arrount the path

use "~/other data/bob.dta"

Now TextMate treats the stuff in the quotes as a string  and doesn't
color bob.dta. What I'd like to have happen is that bob.dta is
recognized inside the quotes.

Suggestions on how to achieve this would be much appreciated.



P.S. I should point out that in Stata mostly a quote really does
designate a string, so I don't want TextMate to completely ignore
