I don't think there's a hurry, in this respect.  It's a UI change, so we
can change it later without breaking other people's code.

We'll see if we get many complaints.

`electric-pair-mode' (even the old one) is not a commonly used option,
IIUC.  This is largely because it's not enabled by default, many people
don't like/want such a feature, and those who do want it have many ways
to get it, many of which predate electric-pair-mode.

I do hope/expect it to become the standard way to get the feature,
but it'll take a little while to get there.
