First thing when I look at the file: it looks terribly repetitive!
Maybe something in the style of filetype's sections copying
([name=othername]) would help having all this clearer, ending up with
something like






Needs to be implemented, but a first though make me think it'd make
easier to have/configure per-filetype snippets.

What do you think?
