I think that if you wanted something more like paredit, it might simply suffice to add bindings for the "closer" keys that mapped them to the search-for-end-of-sexp, though I do see (looking again at the paredit cheat-sheet) that the editor would have to distinguish whether or not it was in a comment.

In that case, maybe someone wants to re-tackle this.
