Ah, yes.  I agree with that.

Neither looks right to me, now, given your point.

Why isn't this just in lisp-mode.el?  I see your
reply to Eli about that.  In that case, how about
something like lisp-mode-fl.el or lisp-fl.el?

Or if, as you suggested in your reply to Eli, we
moved some of lisp-mode.el to a separate file,
and if it made sense for that moved stuff to be
in the same file as the font-lock stuff, maybe
lisp-extra.el, lisp-misc.el, or something else?
