Hi All,

   first, excuse the venting.  Who the %*&^$# decided to inflict the
"always type a matching open/close pair" when typing any of ( [ { etc on
us?  Would that person please consider commiting hara kiri?

OK, now slightly calmer, I find it /exceedingly/ annoying.  Is this really
an appropriate default?    How does one turn it off?

The cases that send me up my *&%$^# tree are when I intend to add a single
one in front of some string when I go back to edit some text (e.g. add an
exception handler around some phrase).  Here, typing the pair *is just
broken*.  Doing it at the end of a text or at the end of line is
defensible.  Doing it always IS F*&^%$*G BROKEN.
