One nice thing about the left-margin convention is that stray parens in
column zero have localized effect only.  When I have to rely on the
correctness of the entire syntax of my buffer in order to get reasonable
syntax-highlighting editing will get tedious: Suppose I deliberately
introduced some mis-balanced paren near the top of the buffer and to fix
that case I want to patch some code from the end of the buffer.  I would
feel penalized.
