This should be defined as a constant.

Maybe Jump to Matching Brace might be more appropriate here, since it jumps and doesn't open a dialog like the first 2, and might go better with the new Jump to Definition command, although is also an even longer name. If changed, maybe the key could just be "JUMPTO_BRACE".


Initial review complete.

I noticed that when going to the opening brace, it places the cursor before it. It might be better to place it after, so you could just start writing code, instead of moving the cursor first. I checked that Sublime places the cursor after the opening brace and before the closing brace when jumping to the matching brace.
