      Don't remember seeing a reply to this one, so I'll give it a shot.

      Possible solutions:
      1. Add a 'publicly accessable' function (ie not a <SID> function) that
      calls the script's initialize function. This would have to be inside
      the script so that this function knows what <SID> translates into so
      that it can call the right function (see :h on scriptnames and
      But that isn't very conducive to upgrades made by the author.

      2. Ask the author of HiMatchBrkt.vim to do #1.

      3. Add a line in your vimrc that sets up an autocmd for VimEnter that
      will execute the mapping for you.
      ex: au VimEnter * exe "normal <put script init mapping here>"

      Number 3 is untested, but if not this, a similar setup should work.
