I´d love to do that, and I think it could be done.  I´d mostly have to
add some things to it and probably wouldn´t need to modify what´s
already there.

How would I do that?  hi-lock.el is part of emacs, which is in a bzr
repo from which I update every now and then.  I could take the current
version of hi-lock.el and put it into a git repo to work on it.  In the
meantime, the original version may change.  Then what?
