I find show-paren-mode useful in buffers where parentheses
are used as intended, i. e. in programs or natural language
texts without smilies, but rather distracting in Gnus buff-
ers where "[]" and "()" are just used as graphical elements.
Similarly, in newsticker "(123)" is used for the number of
unread messages where there is never (?) a need to remind
the user where the parentheses end, but the flashing is con-

None of those are unsolvable problems, but it would be nice
if Emacs as shipped could disable show-paren-mode in those
cases so the user does not have to.
