Idea: what about adding a fence-skip or fence-ignore regexp setting that
would be used to ignore and skip portions of text while looking for a
matching pair, and could then be set by each specific mode ?

This may be of general use, looks simple enough, and would help to solve
that question.

I don't know how difficult it could be to code, though :)
