I saw such highlight in one Eclipse php-highlight plugin. For ex. if I move cursor on the "$tmp" variable (or some function), it will be background-highlighted. And all $tmp variables (or fnctions) in editor will be background-highlighted too.
It very helps to trace variable/function in code, or sometimes to notice an error in var's name if none will be highlighted.

    I think it's a bit confusing having all variables - with the same name - highlighted.
    It could be implemented as an "optional" feature :P

    Yes, of course it can be optional.
    When I saw it at first time, I wanted to turn it off and thought that it a bag to highlight such. But after working a few days with it, I can't work without it now (and my friend too :).
