Thanks Theo! I was actually just about to email you about this stuff.

I will test drive the C and C++ stuff.

A few comments:
- (This one is for everyone) For lists of things (like keywords, etc.) and the 
font-lock rules, can we consider alphabetizing them (for the font-lock rules it 
would be by feature)? It would make them a lot easier to scan for what's 
there/not there and give them some order (and we could then be consistent 
everywhere). I am happy to send a patch for this.
- I recently added some new font-lock faces for tree-sitter that you may wish 
to make use of: 
  - I am happy to send a patch adding support for them.
- For my C++ configuration, my treesit font lock rules has 2 queries: one for C 
and one for C++. The C one has all the usual C stuff, and the C++ one has ONLY 
C++-related things. Could we do something similar here? That would really 
reduce the duplication in the C++ file.
