BBEdit/Textwrangler LCM for livescript

Thanks for this James.

I'm new to using TextWrangler but it appears that it doesn't recognize
multiple words in a keyword definition.  For example "open file" isn't
colored as a keyword, only "file" because it has a separate keyword
definition.  Not sure if there is a way round this other than breaking the
multiple word keywords into separate keyword definitions.

I would also like to learn how to define if/end if, repeat/end repeat, etc
as structures that can be folded.  I tried using the Open Statement Blocks
and Close Statement Blocks keys in the plist to define "if" and "end" as a
statement block but they weren't recognized as foldable.

There are a number of other things that don't seem to be working as far as
colorization.  Strings enclosed in quotes and variables aren't colored per
the Preferences settings, and keywords within quote-delimited strings are
colorized but shouldn't be.  I tried using the Open Strings 1 and Close
Strings 1 set to quote but that had no effect.

Any ideas?
