What do you read/edit code with?  I, personally, use XEmacs.  The
Meta-Rightarrow and Meta-Leftarrow keys perform "forward-sexp" and
"backward-sexp", respectivly.  That means they hop forward and backward
across either a token, a set of quotation marks, or a paren / brace
group.  The other related feature that I like quite a lot is
paren-match, where it highlights an entire parenthesised or brace
surrounded expression when the cursor is before or after the paren or
brace.  These two features make getting around in and seeing the
wrapping of scheme code a lot simpler.  They are also very useful in C++
