My 0 cents.

An expert user may have different requirements or may look at atypical
source files.  But he cannot count himself in for this survey.

`show-paren-mode' is topping the list.  That it's behaviour "suffices"
is what matters.  Whether there is an alternate behaviour that is
"superior" shouldn't matter much.

It is easy to tell when the other end is out of view.  In that case, I
can scroll so that both ends are within the screen.

Otherwise, I just use C-M-n and C-M-p. I don't need blinking. It works
for me.
