[plt-scheme] Parentheses and color

I never count parentheses, but frequently watch the highlighting of 
subexpressions. DrScheme realy makes it easy. When typing a sequence of closing 
parentheses I simply check that the start of the highlighting correctly skips 
back one level of indentation for each closing parenthesis. The same method can 
be used to quickly spot a missing closing parenthesis. The method works perfect 
even if the parentheses would not be visible.
