Yes, vim does that. Any line starting with % is a comment. Of these, any 
line that starts with %D honors context command highlighting regions. When 
it sees a \starttyping syntax highlighting is switched off until the next 
\stoptyping. So, everything between a \starttyping and \stoptyping is in 
black (the default \maincolor). What I use is the the default vim 
colorscheme (by Nikolai Weibull). Mojca had made some improvements to the 
context highlighting, which had a few improvements (mp syntax highlighting 
inside \startMPcode \stopMPcode etc, C syntax highlighting inside \startC 
\stopC, and so on). I do not remember whether it took care of 

Redoing, vim syntax highlighting for context and metapost has been on my 
todo list for a long time. Someday the vim syntax highlighting rules will 
make sense to me.
