What about modifying GNU a2ps (http://www.inf.enst.fr/~demaille/a2ps/)
or code2html (http://www.palfrader.org/code2html/), which already
implement syntax highlignting for a number of languages ?

a2ps especially has support for an impressive list of languages

Maybe the author would be interested in modularizing the output layer
so that other formats (ie. docbook) than postscript could be produced.
I CC the a2ps list.
