Enums and preprocessor macros are currently lumped together for coloring.
Variables seems to include constexprs - which seems wrong to me. You cannot change the value of a constexpr - it's rather more like enum or #define than it is like a variable, static or local.

So I'd rather see constexprs and enum values handled with one common color, and #define could be that or could be its own thing. Either would work for my world.

But having constexprs as variables is just not-right. It's not really what they are (even const variables can be changed - have a memory address, whereas constexpr is little more than a type'd #define).

We are considering colouring enums and #defines separately, rather than lumping them together. Adding constexp to this makes sense, and I have put a note onto the case about this:

Great! Hope that goes through.

Again, I don't mind the #defines and enums having same color - small potatoes - but would prefer that constexpr get lumped into whatever bin the enums exists in - it's just a processor symbol - it has no inherent existence of its own.
