Hmm - that was badly phrased - I should have said

because of course % and %{ %} are no harder than //  /* */

Heikki, I don't think there's any need for those complicated regexps for
matching strings and comments. If you remove "font-lock-keywords-only",
the fontification works perfectly well using just the syntax table, and
it recognises strings within strings, comments within comments...

(I've just noticed in the elisp manual about updating syntax table
properties using font-lock mode regexp matching... I wonder if that might
help with some of the uglier aspects of our mode. Must look into this
