Cool. Thank you.

No it is not, but give enough time and money, one could do a study  
and find out what is easiest for the largest group of users. The fact  
that so many editors already do this does indicate that a large  
number of people do at least *like* being able to double-clicking  
delimiters to find matching pairs. :-)
