The problem is with things like: `+foo+ and +bar+`.
If you double-click the second `+` then how to know if we should search
left or right for the paired character?
We could look at surrounding whitespace, but then there is `(+foo+)`
with no whitespace around. So we could look at word characters, but then
`"` is also a paired character and we have things like: `printf("%s…",
arg);` where neither side of the first `"` has whitespace or
That said, I’ve made a note about this, I think we could do a
heuristic based on the above thinking that should get it right most of
the time, and it would actually be awesome to have ⇧⌘B work in
Though right now there is “Select Current Scope” which works to
select the current “unit”, this might also be helpful in determining
whether to search left/right of `+foo+`, assuming the grammar matches
