SHOUT request for new preference

I would like to suggest a small change in SHOUT settings. While SHOUT is 
an extraordinary tool in browsers, it may be somewhat intrusive in 
workspaces: often I use a workspace to display some text which is not 
code at all. When SHOUT is enabled, such text gets wrongly 

While the best way to deal with this would be I guess to define a 
per-workspace setting (such as the existing 'create textual reference to 
dropped morphs' toggle), it would be nice to at least have a specific 
setting for disabling SHOUT in workspace, having


	Preferences syntaxHighlightingInWorkspaces

instead of

	Preferences syntaxHighlightingAsYouType

... and then I think Preferences syntaxHighlightingInWorkspaces should 
default to false.

does this make sense ?
