[clangd-dev] Syntax highlighting of keywords

Yeah. I can see this being useful if lexing got more complicated (e.g. if
the committee added string interpolation).

But as it stands, I think we should be doing the simplest thing if
performance doesn't matter, and the minimal thing if it does.

Alternately we could highlight *everything* (including braces and such) to
allow editors without local highlighting. But I doubt they'll ever exist,
the flickering would be so bad.
