Indeed, only functions and macros called as functions.  Naively,
anything that follows the C rule for a function name, is preceeded by a
word boundary, and succeeded by an opening parenthesis, '(', is what I
would like to highlight.  Years back I used FTE which did this which is
where I became used to it but for various reasons I much prefer Geany.
