Hello All,

I have been working on a command that selects words matching your current selection in the current scope (based on braces). Basically like super+d but grabs everything in scope at once.

It selects matches to the nearest pair of braces {}
It includes a for/if/foreach/function/class line preceding the {, since that almost always makes sense.
If all the matches are already selected, it selects to the next containing pair of braces.
It looks for whole words, because in practice for me that has seemed better, but that would probably make a good config option.
Relies on the langage grammer for the file to ignore braces in comments and strings.
It doesn't really understand any language scope rules, just goes off of a generalized c-like assumption about braces.
It doesn't understand scope in braceless languages (python), but does select all matches in the file.

I'm new to python, and to sublime, so I was thinking I would post this here to see if anyone had any suggestions on how to improve the code (specifically on style, but also suggestion for features are welcome). Also, if people think this would be useful to others, I'd be happy to share and to open source it. Where would be the most appropriate place to post this code so others can find it?

Thank you
