      Email it to me. Assuming that others have tried it. Or at least nobody
      found a problem with it.

      You can drop the HiLink command and use "hi def link" directly. No need
      to support an ancient Vim version in a new syntax file.

      The process for understanding customers primarily involves sitting around with
      other marketing people and talking about what you would to if you were dumb
      enough to be a customer.
