On Purpose. '{' is not a valid LCS bracket - so it shouldn't be appear 
outside of strings.

Similarly, single-quote isn't a valid LCS token - so it shouldn't appear 
outside of strings.

Indeed, bracket completion has to ignore content of strings otherwise 
you can't write stuff like:

   put ( ")" & "'" ) & ( "'" ) into tVar

Without funky things happening.
