(IDE) Add smart bracketing to IDEs

For punctuation that changes text color, the IDE should supply the terminating mark (after the cursor) when the initial mark is typed. In other words, if I type "[", the editor would automatically insert the "]" immediately after the cursor. This would prevent the entire source code below the insertion point from having to be converted to the new color, something which can create lengthy waits (and even crashes) in larger projects. It should be smart, however--place an opening quote mark or bracket directly before another character, for example, and the auto-closing should not occur.
