I have to say this is a fairly obscure one. As you say, it shouldn't
interfere with anyone else. .au3 comes up only as an AutoIt extension on
FileExt.com, .auh comes up as unused.

But with so many zillions of extensions and programs about, I wonder if
we should provide some means for users to add their own regexes to the
local installation, rather than add them to the installation file.

UltraEdit has something similar in its wordfiles, which allow you to
define your own syntax highlighting rules and function name extraction.
There are about 12 provided as standard for C/C++, VB, HTML, etc. And
there as a contrib section on their website where you can download
others that users have contributed.

It would have to be with the proviso that we cannot support/debug user
regexes, and it would need suitable documentation and examples.
