Ahaha. Right. That's what I get for not reading up on prior art :-)

What do you mean, it doesn't work what did you expect to happen?

electric-pair-mode only kicks in when inserting parenthesis interactively.

To be fair to lispy, probably also for JSON and some other languages.

I like that it forbids me to go past the end of the list. I even use that
for programming without looking at the computer. Just forward list a
million times until you hear the bell.

I understand lispy's convenience philosophy, but it's undeniable that
it expands the instruction set. I'm after the low hanging fruit: keep
the same reduced instruction set and have Emacs resonably guess
what I'm trying to do.
