Extension Node - Syntax Highlighting

Initial Situation: In same cases we have the need in ibm spss modeler streams to use R / python to add very special functionality.

Issue: The extension node, e.g. (extension model) has no syntax highlighting

Due to the lack of usability, most of internal customers jump for example to R - Studio, Jupyter  and then copy and paste code to ibm spss.

Benefit: Increase of developer efficiency
