If you add that feature (i.e., the edit highlighted keyword feature) 
can you allow us to add words as well.  I know in the past you said 
this is based on the use of kwlist, but maybe if at startup you 
initialized the "highlight" list from kwlist and then allowed a project 
preference to add/del from the list everyone would be happy.

Michael Foord is correct that 'credits' is a builtin and is highlighted
as such.  We should probably add a way to turn off highlighting of
builtins such as 'credits' that are rarely used.
