Font lock is run by the idle timer. So if you
are productive enough and do things all the
time, you won't get it :)

If the file isn't opened, it is just a bunch of
data. Font lock isn't encoded in the files,
thanks heaven.

You will have to make a loop that opens all
files... perhaps it'll be a challenge to have
font loke come to life each time tho?

Pattern match, like they have for arguments in
Erlang and SML? There are Lisp modules for
that. Still, I'd start with finding out how
font lock does it...
