Hi Kate team!

I understand that this is a bit of perversion to edit vim scripts from Kate :) But i do not use Kate at all, instead i use pandoc utility (which in turn uses haskell library highlighting-kate) to translate HTML to TeX. Highlighting-kate does not support VimL as soon as Kate does not support this scripting language, so i cannot get bits of VimL highlighted in my resulting PDFs. I would not have written this here if i have not known that Kate supports approx 200 different languages. And VimL as exception from that list looks really weird even if it smells like perversion!

Cheers, Alexey.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open .vimrc or any .vim script in Kate

Actual Results:  
No syntax highlights and no possibility to turn it on.

Expected Results:  
Vim scripts are highlighted properly.

I don't think its a perversion, its ok to have such a hl.
Still, we can't keep here wishs open for all missing hls ;)
If you have some patch, please provide it, else the goal is: any hl will be accepted.
