I thought I addressed that bug report more or less adequately.

The piece of code you've quoted does not follow the idiomatic way font-lock-keywords should be used, but it plays by the documented rules, and simply adds compose-region as a side-effect. We can't document every way people might want to write a Lisp program.

In any case, I thought we've moved away from the idea of using font-lock, to translating the buffer contents directly, in Lisp?
