I would be nice to be able to turn off the
"auto-complete" feature for paired syntax elements. Or
at least disable it by default, when there is already
some non whitespace character after the element entered.

auto completing braces while typing $bla{} is ok but not
if I exchange the brackets in $bla[23] with braces.
Then "auto-complete" creates $bla{}23], which is
annoying, if you're typing with more than 10 chars/minute.

I'm trying to use EPIC as my default perl editor/IDE,
but chances are that this completion "feature" drives
me back to my old one. The rest is really great!

    If you really 'if you're typing with more than 10
    chars/minute' you are quite slow typist.

    Let's see what a new release will bring.

    No, the problem is I'm typing a lot faster than 10chars/min,
    so I'm somewhere down the line when the syntax checker sees
    the superfluous brace and I have to jump back and correct it.
    If you're slow you'll be able to correct it on the spot,
    because you haven't moved that much :-)

    What would even be better is if auto-quote, auto-bracket were smart enough to know that if I'm in
    the MIDDLE OF A WORD I *probably* don't want a balanced set of whatever I'm typing.
