CoNLL-U Syntax Highlighting for Sublime Text

The CoNLL-U format is defined on the Universal Dependencies website. Scope naming has been changed from what was originally proposed in order to create better syntax highlighting for Sublime Text. The regular expression has also been changed to match for whitespaces (\s) instead of tabs (\t). An Atom extension exists for CoNLL-U highlighting by @Evpok.
