Integrates the Prism Syntax Highlighting Library in WordPress.

It is called detached, since the code examples are not stuffed into the rich text editor, together with all the other texts and content, but they are added separately as custom fields and just referenced via short tags (like footnotes).

The official development repository is hosted on Github.
