I guess I am the original author, though I haven't worked on it for a  
while (not since my kids were born!).  The svn blame for this piece of  
the grammar goes to gerti, duff and msheets.

Let me say that if we as a Textmate community really want to have  
distributed editing of these grammars, then we should develop a set of  
test cases to check if our grammar edits break anything. Maybe one or  
two documents with a .png of the correct highlighting using a default  
color scheme.
