Very robust.  vim is a "programming editor" and is designed for this
sort of thing.  As a programming editor, keeping track of curly braces
(or anything else that might be paired up) is mandatory.  

The main advantage of vim (to some) is that everything is
keyboard-driven.  One can do everything with hands never having to
leave the keyboard for the mouse. Those who aren't comfortable in this
type of mouseless environment have mouse-driven menus they can use.

While it's possible to typeset from within vim as well, it takes some
setup on a Mac to do properly, so I use TexShop for typesetting.   The
combination of vim and TexShop works well together.
