It's not really that simple as {}/() look-up. R's syntax is not that
uniform. We barely can make indentation right.

It would be possible when we have emacs based R parser. I looked into
Wisent 2 years ago but never got down to implementing anything. Recently
a friend of mine got interested in implementing it for didactic
reasons. So maybe sooner than later it will eventually happen.
