OK. For emacs:
'(("gtk_widget_new" 1 font-lock-function-name-face t)
("gtk_widget_whatever" 1 font-lock-function-name-face t)
("GtkWidget" 1 font-lock-keyword-face t)
("GtkFrame" 1 font-lock-keyword-face t)
By using etags to build a list of function names, then sed/awk/perl to
transform this into an elisp statement like the one above, the job
could be done extremely quickly.
I don't know how quick emacs would handle this for a library with
hundreds of functions but I imagine it would work pretty well.
