There have been a lot of different suggestions, each with quite
different ramifications.  I didn't intentionally ignore that suggestion.

Ok, sure.  I think the category approach (and the `font-lock-face'
approach) should support Info and comint well enough, but if you think
it's a good idea to also have `font-lock-function', then we should add
it as well.
