Having worked in AutoLisp for quite some times I heavily used this 
feature. Enclose parts of expressions when I got precedence wrong or to 
temporarily commenting out code with this feature was really handy.

It's been nasty with < and with ' in comments.

So when it was gone and I didn't find the preference I just stopped 
using the feature :-))
