I'm comparing the Geany highlighting with that of JGR. In the latter,

typing "fun1" or

typing "obj1" will make JGR recognise it as a function/object and
immediately render it in blue and italic (current settings here, I
think). In Geany nothing similar happens.

Unfortunately I notice a bit more than that. :)
