I would like to see the "matching" parentheses highlighted when editing source code in Visual Studio and the text cursor is placed on a beginning or ending parentheses. It's not common to use parentheses in Haskell, but when you have to this feature is very nice to have.

Adding this capability to braces (i.e. "{", "}") and brackets (",?") would also be nice.

Unless I'm missing something, this is not something that can be fixed in/by GHC..

The component is "visual haskell", which was an VS extension released some years ago. Long, long out of date.

But that's why the bug is here.
