Which is a good thing: if you somehow miss the momentary highlight,
you'd need to delete and reinsert the paren to see it again.  When you
edit a complex sexp, you might wish to see the matching parens after
they are already inserted.  show-paren-mode solves this nuisance
(which happens to me all the time when I use "emacs -Q").

Of course, I'm a veteran and devoted user of show-paren-mode.
