This is a simple set of highlighting rules for files consisting of key:value pairs, plus some highlighting for indentation.

Format looks like this:

first level
    second level
        third level
            keytype1: value
            keytype2# value

Note that two different symbols are defined: : and #. It's easy enough to add some more. I use this to define information that I care about and don't care about. This usually goes nicely with fdm=indent.
