For most Portfiles, the tcl mode is far from useful. From an error I
have discovered that vim's tcsh syntax mode does interesting coloring of
portfiles... Probably the best (for vim users at least) would be to
create a vim syntax file for macports syntax (hence the modeline would
become something like # vim:ft=macports).
