Hmm... it should be sufficient to check for the character code for "(" ... but I suppose there are some hick-ups with the key codes?

Old thread, but still up to date. When would you ever expect the 9 key do add

What would be wrong with just removing this 9? Or at least introducing a new
preference for that (TextEditor>>#useDigitsToEncloseSelection)?
