In all C-style languages (C/C++/Java, etc) my fingers automatically insert
the braces. The keystrokes are something like ... (non-printable keys
delimited by <>)

for (int i = 0; i < ...; i++)<enter - auto-indent>{<enter - auto-dedent>}<up
arrow><enter - auto-indent>...

Don't even think about it ... the braces are *always* there by the time I
start writing the enclosed code, properly indented.
