      Ah, right. With -Nu NONE, and testing on matched ( ) parentheses, the
      deleted text does appear in register 1. But not with -Nu NORC, since I
      have a $VIM/vimfiles/plugin/matchit.vim containing only the line

      runtime macros/matchit.vim

      So I think that the OP was also using matchit, in which case he would
      not be using the % movement "as defined in Vim" anymore than I did the
      first time.

      Best regards,
      "Science... warns me to be careful how I adopt a view which jumps
      with my preconceptions, and to require stronger evidence for such
      belief than for one to which I was previously hostile. My business
      is to teach my aspirations to conform themselves to fact, not to
      try and make facts harmonize with my aspirations."
