That's a point, yeah.  It's just difficult because, on Lazarus for 
example, anything inside braces is coloured as if it were a comment in 
an asm block.  Changing this so it appears the same colour as the rest 
of the assembly code when on Arm platforms would help reduce the 
confusion, although that's another story, and I'm not sure what the 
policy is on platform-specific syntax highlighting.
