Hello all!

New syntax package is ready, which includes small improvements
over the previous version:

o It does highlighting of list of the terms if you do not put spaces
between commas and terms (like [foo,bar,baz], which is better to write
as [foo, bar, baz]) -- think as a style enforcement.

o It ignores now integer lists, so it's okay to write [1,2,3,4,5] --
which is more readable, than space separated number list.

o Pair brackets and curly braces (i.e. lists and tuples) are highlighted
now with some non-obtrusive color. If you see brace/bracket with
black(or normal text color) -- it means that you have illegal brace
nesting there. Some illegal nesting cases highlighted with red now.

o Added back as a bonus simple testing server modeled after erlang's
original test_server. Much more lightweight and quite easy to setup and
run (see in bonus directory).  Syntax and testing module interface is
compatible with test_server.
