While making these videos, though, I found that I *really* wanted to be able to give people a simple way to do this.  As a result, I've now added a preference to DrRacket called "enable automatic parentheses." It's available as part of the development build now, but it probably won't be a part of the 5.1.2 release. It should definitely be a part of the 5.1.3 release.

Thanks a lot, John. I sync with the git repo every day and but usually
build only the releases I see in the changelog. I will try building it
tonight and meanwhile use your key bindings. Thanks a lot, again.
