Hi Andreas and Katsumi

Thank you very much.

I think that insert-pair should duplicate by default every input
character when the characters is not in insert-pair-alist.  Except
when the user *prescribes* the numeric argument to 1.

But then, how can one detect programmatically whether the user gives
interactively no argument (default argument 1) and an actual argument
1?
