can do to make the font itself change. However, you can colorize
differently. Toying around, I came up with this:
:match Error /)\zs)/
which seems to correctly highlight alternating adjacent parents
(using the "Error" group, which I tend to use, but adjust
according to taste). My original though was to try and do
something of the form "\%1c(\|%3c(\|%5c(\|..." for alternating
screen columns, but I like the compactness of the actual solution
I gave, as well as its ability to work regardless of the number
of columns in your terminal window.
