Re: flashing brackets, parenthesis, etc
- BTW it seems to me there is a bug surrounding this:
a) $fmatchdelay is calibrated in ms, not seconds as stated in its
help. (This is consistent with other delay variables.)
b) fence matching is always active, regardless of setting of CMODE
This is kind of annoying when typing things like smilies in text

the lisp support does not use cmode but if I switched of fence matching life
would become a lot more difficult. This evidently needs to be a setting on a
per buffer type basis (i.e. an option in buffer-setup), a new buffer mode
would fit the bill the best I think.
