I'm not really sure whether we should add snippets for every filetype
user reporting. This might lead to a big snippets files with all its
disadvantages (longer loading time, harder to maintain, ...).
OTOH it might be indeed useful to have some more defaults like those
for Python. So I'll add them with the note that we try to keep the
default snippets short.
