editing erlang programs in vim

Nifty! If I can find the time, I'll try it.
I tossed out the Erlang syntax coloring that comes with vim and made
my own. The big difference is that I do syntax coloring of function
heads. For example, in this code:
fib(N) when N < 2 -> 1;
fib(N) -> fib(N-2) + fib(N-1).
everything to the left of the "->" on each line is in it's own color.
This makes code *much* easier to read, at least for me. Other
* Coloring of lists, tuples, and binaries, which help make syntax
errors more obvious.
* Generally more robust handling than the default colorer (handles
character constants correctly, etc.).
* No coloring of BIFs and standard library functions, because I don't
see the point.
If anyone would like to try it, let me know.
