But no, I don't want to try to turn emacs into vi so much as turn
emacs power loose on if-fi while-done etc constructs.

That was my my main question and I didn't notice anything on those
sites about that... I hope I just missed it.

So still wondering how to get paren type actions to work on if-fi type
