There is a need for a highlighting of the google protobuf format. Sometimes it is used in kate editor or in QtCreator (as a compatible editor highlighting source)
Steps to Reproduce:
Feature Request, nothing to reproduce
In the attachment to the issue I provide simple highlighter for the google protobuf definition. It works in QtCreator 2.7.0 and provides basic highlighing. Please bear in mind, that I'm not a very avid user of Kate editor and done it just by looking at the kate documentation and sample highlighters. Please take a look at it carefully because, there could be some glitched, which I do not recognize.
