A workaround that I sometimes use is

  \newcommand{\ignore}[1]{} your \verb!$PATH!\ignore$ blah blah

But since that just makes the problem a little less annoying, I also
started working some time ago on a better fontifier for LaTeX files. A
really ambitious one, in fact---I am currently pondering whether it
might be possible to handle even things like

  some math here

But since this doesn't fall within the scope of what the standard
font-lock machinery can handle, there's a lot of work involved and
(alas) I don't expect to have a releasable version any time soon.
