Basically i would like to reuse the QtCreator syntax highlighting in Qml
for highlight some code.
Currently, for what i know, the correct way is subclassing the 
QSyntaxHighlighter and use the QDocument API.
I didn't digged inside the QtCreator codebase, but i understood that
currently QtCreator can reuse the syntax highlighting files from the Kate 
However i don't know how this is done. Does QtCreator use itself a subclass
of QSyntaxHighlighter? or has it a custom mechanism? 
I possible to extract part of this for plugging in my own application?
If yes, which are the high level steps that i should follow?
