This is a repost of
'[PyQt] Can't disable key strokes while flashing matching
recast as a feature request.

I have found no good way for my app to flash matching brackets in a
QTextEdit.  The problem is that keystrokes that occur during flashing can

Nobody has responded to my requests for sample code illustrating how this
might be done.

Some widget-level support for this kind of thing would be greatly
appreciated.  This is the only thing I have found that Tk can handle better
than Qt :-)
