I have decided to only port the next release of BracketHighlighter2. I have been able to restore basic bracket highlight functionality, but the there is a lot of broken crap dealing with the Bracket Plugins. Also, it appears that parts of the API are not yet finished which also gives a less than reliable experience in regards to settings being reloaded proper.
Nothing has been committed, and I don't know yet when it will be because I am going to have to restructure a bunch of crap because of the substantial changes. Removing begin_edit and end_edit really screws up my system...argghh.
ST3 is a pretty big change really messing up how I did things. General highlighting was pretty easy to kick start on ST3...everything else...not so much.
