If the JDE mode doesn't feed bovinator information into font-lock, it
should. (It certainly *collects* that information.)

But really font-lock needs to be junked and a bovinator-based language
highlighting/indentation engine needs to be developed... regexps just
don't cut it for parsing languages.
