Glancing over the cheat-sheet, it looks like the only major change would be the fact that right-paren is not mapped to jump-outward; instead, I just use the right arrow for that (when there are intervening chars, I  use opt-up opt-right).

I should have written more clearly here. What I meant by the above
statement is that, if I occasionally put a left paren, it inserts the
right paren as well and now if I immediately remove the right paren,
then the right paren remains.
