Well, vim, though maybe dumb, is often accounted as having
better syntax highlighting (I had no chance to prove that,
since dont use emacs). At least, the examples you provided
caused no problem. Can you present the original problem with
' and ('s - I'd like to check how it does?

There are quite simple parsing based on regexps (and some
very common "shadowing" principles). You could look at their
syntax file, and maybe port it to emacs.
