Re: font-locking and open parens in column zero

    *** font-lock: in modes like C and Lisp where the fontification assumes that
    an open-paren in column 0 is always outside of any string or comment,
    font-lock now highlights any such open-paren-in-column-zero in bold-red
    if it is inside a string or a comment, to indicate that it can cause
    trouble with fontification and/or indentation.

That is probably obsolete, from the days before C mode started using
`c-beginning-of-syntax'.  This feature is no longer needed in C mode,
since `c-beginning-of-syntax' prevents the confusion it was meant to warn
the user about.

So I will update this NEWS entry.
