It seems like Frantisek wanted to introduce a different color for
highlighting of all "[(<>)]" brackets, what adds the magenta background
to the highlighted one. This looks like the purpose for the
MOD_MARKEDBRACKET. Personally I like it more than the usual highlighting
style we have, but it could be achieved by MOD_BOLD redefinition.

I can imagine the enhancement can be useful for XML/HTML/PHP, etc. but
maybe it could be a configurable feature if considered to be committed
at all.
