I think that's something you'd have to do yourself. It involves  
creating two files, e.g.


that include the keywords and directions to Xcode. I don't know the  
details of the internals of these files, but you can Google the terms  
"xclangspec" and "pbfilespec". I'm attaching two files that you can  
use as a starting point (I copied the python files to use as a  
template). I haven't been able to get them to work though. Finally,  
you'll need to install them in:

~/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/Specifications

I think. :)

Let us know if you can get it to work.
