Add short name for Emacs Lisp

While elisp files are correctly highlighted, there is no established short name for the language. I think it's just a matter of adding another short name to the CommonLispLexer (and I may dig into the code and put together a pull request to that effect if I find myself motivated).

I only noticed this because I have some Org files on Github with elisp code blocks that are not highlighted (while, say, CL and Clojure blocks are).

If someone beats me to it, I propose emacs-lisp as the short name in order to play nicely with org-babel.

    Where do you want to use this alias? We already have elisp as an alias for CommonLispLexer, so I'm not sure exactly what you're suggesting.
