Makes me think of Oceans 11, and prompts the question "are you in or are you out, right now !"

This is just what divorced people need, if you combine this with your claw project.

You could sit in front of the television and get snacks from the kitchen without the need to get married.

Of course nature uses parents to do this until we are old enough to use mechatronics.

Very clever !

A case against syntax highlighting

in my opinion, the most important for a feature is not to be objectively « good » or « bad » but to make you comfortable !
And syntax highlighting makes me comfortable so i use it ! I tried as you suggested to use a 2 colors syntax highlighting, but I don’t feel comfortable :(
The other thing is that you mostly consider the thing in C, that is one language. I find syntax highlighting particularly handy with Laney languages like python, lua, etc. But I won’t use it that much for C, APL, J or BASIC ! That comes from the Main ideas of each language : c is really low level so you don’t have that much improvement with syntax highlighting while python has a lot of different features and you sometimes need to differentiate them. For example, I feel comfortable to have a color for python keywords because it helps to differentiate them from a variable...

My point of view is that everything depends of what you first learnt and what you use the most : I’m quite sure that somebody that learned to read English with colors like you suggested would prefer to read with colors than without...
