This is a fork of pyparadigm's SublimeBrackets I forked this to fix some issues I had and to add some features I wanted. I also wanted to improve the efficiency of the matching. I also merged in pyparadigm's SublimeTagmatcher as well. This cuts down on the parallel searching that is now streamlined in one search.


The 10/05/11 commit will changes shortcuts. I apologize for this, but it was needed. If the default shorcuts are undesirable, I am open to coming up with better ones.
