The #{…} snippet is (for me) also very useful for wrapping text in  
strings. Otherwise the macro approach sounds good.

As for the } macro, I think we can remove that w/o any real loss --  
ideally snippets should be able to (implicitly) markup text as being  
smart-typing pairs.

I'm curious to why the OP has smart typing disabled as I am very  
close to remove the ability to disable smart typing.

Some sort of strip command sounds like a good idea. I.e. it'd strip  
any paired characters that surrounds the current word. Should be  
doable as a command, if only we can find a good key for that :)
