#416 include blocks in calltip files can only include 3 files

Nathan Gray

I have a calltips file with this block:

* include *

Only the first three tips files are included.

Rather than wading through the godawful mess that is the .tips
parser I would like to rewrite it as a proper lex/yacc grammar.
I've already whipped up a lex scanner that does 90% of the work,
and it's about 15 lines. Compare this to the 150 lines of code in
tags.c that does the same thing and you'll see the advantage.

Clearly this is post-5.5 stuff. For now the easy workaround is to
break each include block into multiple blocks with three files or
less in each.

    I would have to figure out how to integrate another lex
    file into the project without conflicting with the existing
    one. This isn't going to be possible for me any time
    soon. I'll upload my proof-of-concept lex file and maybe
    somebody else can find the time.
