thanks for your comment.  I've heard that most people hacking on .dtx
files simply turn off fontification as it might be too distracting.

I don't think it is a big deal to provide a custom variable, say,
`font-latex-fontify-code-arguments' and then apply a conditional to the
style files in the fontification section.

What do others think?  Any idea for a better variable name?

Best, Arash
