Syntax highlighter for 'tail'?

I'd love some way of tying vim's syntax abilities, or ... well, really anything, to some generic output stream--

I want to tail -f access.log | synhighlighter

or cat myccode.c | synhighlighter

or some such.

Does some unix such thing exist? Could something be hacked to make it exist simply?

Sent to LazyWeb for some love.
