I think we could maybe have as many as 5 underline colours:
ParserError, ParserWarning, CompilerError, CompilerWarning, Spelling.
Perhaps the Compiler/Parser distinction isn't necessary, though there
are differences in their dynamicity that might warrant it, so we
probably need to think this over.

These should of course be defined in the colour scheme so that they
fit in with the other highlighting colours. The named colours should
have fallbacks in case the schemes don't define all the colours.
