Bug #5670: Emacs ruby-mode syntax highlighting issue

Hi there, 

I'm using Emacs and ruby-mode for editing my Ruby files. ruby-mode, however, doesn't know about the % literals. The following code doesn't get the syntax highlighting I'd expect from it:

==============================================
# Should be highlighted as a regular expression, breaks indentation:
regex  = %r<I am a Regular Expression> 

# Should be highlighted as a symbol:
symbol = %s|This is a symbol|          

# Should be highlighted as a string:
str    = %q{This is a string}

# Should be highlighted as a string:
str    = %{This is a string}           

# Should be highlighted somehow, but isn't:
ary    = %w[item1 item2 item3]         

# Should be highlighted as a symbol (not string), sometimes
# breaks indentation
symbol = :"this is a symbol"           
==============================================

I've been told ruby-mode has been written by Matz and therefore I should file a bug here (see http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/390526 ). If that's wrong, please tell me where else to report this.
