It's always worked like that, and I don't think I'd want to change this.

That would be easy to change, but it's always been the way it is.

Same as previous.

I think 2) and 3) are really things for your .emacs file.

Sure, you can always write the code in such a way as to fool
font-locking. Trying to support statements split over lines would be a
lot of extra work for little gain, IMO.

You mean in something like:

type(sometype) :: foo

you would prefer only the "type" part to be highlighted, not the whole
sense be more consistent with something "integer(kind=foo)" and is
easy to do. But the way it works now is how it was originally supposed
to work, until some typo crept in and broke it at some point.

Should be fixed now.

Not at all. It's nice to get some feedback.

I guess you want:

(defun my-f90-mode-hook ()
(local-set-key "\C-c\C-e" 'f90-match-end))
