What you are doing here is perfectly legal. I designed the
electric-pair-inhibit-predicate variable to be external to users and
other modes, presuming those users know what they are doing.
You can use add-function or setq the variable directly. I prefer
the former, but it's probably not available in emacs 24. It's
The function you put there shouldn't be in the elec-pair.el
library, so I suggest you put it in cc-mode.el or wherever you
feel it fits. It'll probably save you that fboundp check.
Naturally, this doesn't fix the C-M-* navigation in multi-line
strings (as you know, if that were fixed, you woundn't need
