Certain styling of formatted source code could be really nice.

But IMAGINE the abuses! It could be as bad as the introduction of HTML to

Italics, bold-face, even different sizes of fonts could be useful.
BUT, ... it was well more than 20 years ago (in computer magazines), that
people found out what a DISASTER proportional spacing is for source code.
("How many spaces do there need to be there?"
Am I the only one here who is old enough to remember how bad that was?
