  14 +
  15 +The MatchParen highlight group tries to do a good thing; namely, highlight the
  16 +paren that matches the one under the cursor. However, my friends and I found
  17 +that having two parentheses highlighted continually confounded our intuition
  18 +about where the *cursor actually is*.
  19 +
  20 +This plugin deals with this problem by setting cursorline and cursorcolumn when
  21 +the cursor is on a paren.
