When I want to this, I'm settling for putting my cursor just inside  
the parenthesis that I want to match and hit Cmd-shift-B. This  
highlights the "span" that this parenthesis delineates. At that point  
I can hit right-arrow to hop to end paren, or left-arrow to hop to  
the first.

Hmm .. now that I think of it that way, you should probably be able  
to record that process as a macro and assign either one to your  
favorite keystroke.

Hah ... I'm gonna do that now ...
