[TxMt] Balancing parentheses near strings

I can't figure this out...

Here's some text:

(this is a parenthesis in quotes "(")

If I put the caret before or after the final quotation and choose  
Select>Enclosing Brackets, TextMate selects the second opening  
parenthesis and the closing parenthesis. Also, no text is selected  
with the caret anywhere else.

How can I teach TextMate that parentheses between quotation marks  
shouldn't be considered for a match? I want something like "Ignore  
parentheses that are in strings" but i can't see how to do that...
