Hi Eric,

what about implementing a simplified navigation mode like such:

just call an object: for example "method", "string", "list" etc.

Emacs will look if inside such a thing.
If yes, it marks it as region.
If not, go forward to the next in buffer.

Should take the common numeric arguments moving forward or backward.

Once the region is marked,  a couple of functions already are provided 
to work at it: see


and the like provided by thing-at-point-utils.el.

which are delivered with


More stuff of that kind at:


Might deliver shorthands within the new mode, so just saying "brack" 
instead of 'ar-bracket-region-atpt' should be enough than.
