New languages for [code] tags?

Dear Ranch Office,

As the Ranch is growing and you've added new forums for other languages and programming paradigms, wouldn't it be nice to update the editor [code] tags to include some of those languages.

Currently we have available:
CSS
Java
JavaScript
SQL
Python
Ruby
PHP
XML

Some suggestions for additional ones:
Groovy
Scala
Clojure
Perl

Are these available already as plugins for JForum? I don't know. If not then I'm sure there'll be a couple of Ranchers out there who would be susceptible to a bit of Cow based bribery to pick up the challenge.

Regards
Tim

That would be nice. But the thing is, the code highlighter being used is http://alexgorbatchev.com/SyntaxHighlighter/, and the languages that are supported here are all the ones that used to have.

It seems that the current version has come a long way, though, and includes many more languages: http://alexgorbatchev.com/SyntaxHighlighter/manual/brushes/. If the new version is a drop-in replacement for the old one then this might not be much work to include.
