As a BDD user, I want support for more keywords in BDD test scripts (background, scenario, etc)

We are missing the gherkin keywords like background and scenario outline which means we would have to still amend any export from the plug in before using in our automation framework.

    Another note, it looks like I can't do multiple Examples either. Sometimes I do this (sorry for the random example):

    Scenario: Check Fruit Flavours

    Given I taste <Fruit>

    Then <Fruit> tastes correct

    And I shall live

    And the <Fruit> should be <Colour>

    Examples: Green fruits

    |Fruit|Colour|

    |Grapes|Green|

    |Apple|Green|

    Examples: Red fruits

    |Fruit|Colour|

    |Grapes|Red|

    |Apple|Red|

    This would be so helpful even without the automation part. We are currently using 'Plain Text' because of this limitation. If the syntax highlighting could be added then we would not need to use Plain Text.

    Other keywords that is not in this description is Feature, Example, Rule, But etc. See https://cucumber.io/docs/gherkin/reference/.

    When we fail a test execution, the line numbers really help us out as well because we can say 'Line 14 failed' or something. But at the moment, we have to copy/paste the plain text line that failed so the developer knows how it failed.
