I gave it a shot.  It doesn't do any of the Unicode delims, because 
let's face it, Unicode is for goobers.

import sys, os

pairs = {'}':'{', ')':'(', ']':'[', '"':'"', "'":"'", '>':'<'}
valid = set( v for pair in pairs.items() for v in pair )

for dirpath, dirnames, filenames in os.walk(sys.argv[1]):
     for name in filenames:
         stack = [' ']
         with open(os.path.join(dirpath, name), 'rb') as f:
             chars = (c for line in f for c in line if c in valid)
             for c in chars:
                 if c in pairs and stack[-1] == pairs[c]:
         print ("Good" if len(stack) == 1 else "Bad") + ': %s' % name
