It's damn simple: on a line where the first non-whitespace character
(specifically, not space or tab) is an '@', then everything from there
to the end of the line.

It's more difficult to specify multi-line font-lock regular expressions
in X/Emacs, and at least XEmacs has a hard time font-locking multiple
lines on the fly, so I don't intend to figure that out.  Patches are
welcome if they work on both Emacs and XEmacs.
