Technically speaking all of those are keywords, not variables. Somewhat

treated at string literals by the Ruby parser. As all of those evaluate
to some value unlike most other keywords I guess it makes some sense to
font-lock them as variables, but I’d prefer if we used font-locking that
makes their special status more apparent.

Sounds good to me. Does this list look exhaustive to you?

It features the JRuby-specific global vars in addition to the standard ones.  
Aside from changing faces, the problems mentioned in this bug should be
