I think you should also add "code-block:: <language>" to the
regexp. There are only a few uses now, but I think someone's bound to
hit the same problem with those.

Perhaps also extract the regexp to a variable with a self-documenting
name.

Thanks for doing this. Not that I like it, but as you say, it fits right
in the script. I have some ideas on how to do all of the highlights
nicely as post-processing in the Sphinx extension, but we need this now
and not somewhere in the distant future.

BR,
Jani.
