Hi Vitalie,

thanks again for your ideas and contribution to r-autoyas!

Yes, good point. I have changed it now so that the parentheses are not
part of the snippet. r-autoyas-expand has argument paren (instead of
no-paren as you suggested) and if it is t parentheses will be

(Your version was very skeleton-pair friendly, but would delete the
closing parenthesis if skeleton-pair was not used.)

Absolutely great! Included in the update.

Also perfect! I was actually wondering whether something like this was
possible and you answered the question before I even asked. Included
in the update.

I gratefully mention your full name in the Changelog. How is this for
you? Would you prefer it any different?

I will look at other feature requests now and will write another post
about the update when finished for today.
