Hi Stephan,

no, I mean the auto-brace highlight in the editor.

    1   2   3    3   21
test(foo(bar(1, 2), 2))

When I put the cursor *on* the closing 3, it'll highlight the opening
and closing 3. When I put it after it, as well. However, when I put it
*on* the closing 1, after the closing 2, it will highlight the opening

I would like the editor always only highlight the brace immediately
before the cursor, so that brace pair 2 is highlighted if the cursor is
exactly on the closing 1.

I've thought of this as well, but this is an extra keystroke I'd like to
save myself:)
