It looks like highlightPairs is what this functionality ties into, but I
couldn’t make it work with any pairs that were the same; so ["+","+"]
didn’t work but ["+","-"] did.

Though my C foo is not good;

It looks like the opener character matching the closing character prevents
the range from being generated because it matches the opening character.

If the query is "+ foo +" the search starts and stops on the first +.

If what I’m reading is correct, this might be as simple as starting "from +
1" when looking up the next result.

But I’m probably wrong, lol.

We can double-click a left parenthesis to select everything from there to
the corresponding right parenthesis, and vice versa, so this raises the
question: how does my bundle opt in to this? For example, in my "language"
(AsciiDoc), a plus sign might be a delimiter. Is there a way to set things
up so that double-clicking a plus sign selects to the other plus sign?

I tried smartTypingPairs and highlightPairs, but neither of those was it...
