Well, while I agree with you that fontifying Foo:: as a type "makes more
sense" from a pedantic point of view, than fontifying as a constant, I
think most people don't really care much about such details of
fontification as long as it "looks OK" (mostly meaning important syntax
bits are visually distinctive but not annoying).

With my face setup, the current fontification looks fine, indeed I never
noticed this little inconsistency.

Now that I think about it, in fact, I rather _like_ that Foo:: is not
fontified as a type, because in a case like:

   EnvmapLight::gen_samples (const Intersect &isec, SampleRayVec &samples) const

I get visually distinct faces for "void", "EnvmapLight", and
"gen_samples", which helps the readability of the code a bit I think.

I'd rather be consing.
