the source code view would be a bit easier on the eyes if it had at least some very basic and limited support for syntax highlighting, this could possibly be just keyword-based - so that qgit could allow keywords and possibly some regex patterns to be defined by the user for certain file extensions, or alternatively this could be based on existing QT components to do simple syntax highlighting.

In general, it is probably safe to assume that support for C and C++ syntax highlighting would already be a big improvement.
