Also I added the 'matchchars' option to vi in order to remove '<' and '>'
from the characters matched by '%'.
Historically only "()[]{}" were matched by '%' although "<>" might be
useful in some languages, they are not in C.
In particular I often (yes often!) type c% at the start of xx->yy(zz)
and the '>' needs to be ignored.
