Patch to match brackets on double click

Please find attached a handy patch for KDevelop-1.1 to enhance KDevelop's double
click behaviour. Double click on '{', '}', '(', ')', '[', or ']' and the text
will be selected up until the matching close bracket. Brackets inside literals
and comments in C/C++/Objective-C are ignored.

Apple's ProjectBuilder has this feature, and I find it really useful.

Copy kdevelop-1.1bracketmatch.patch to the directory above KDevelop-1.1

	$ cd  kdevelop-1.1
	$ patch -p1 < ../kdevelop-1.1bracketmatch.patch
	$ ./configure
	$ make
	$ make install
