Sorry, I misspoke about the theme file. You should make your changes in
your '~/.textadept/properties.lua' file, as Textadept's properties.lua
sets the brace style (which probably overwrites your theme file's

>>> local INDIC_BRACEMATCH = textadept.editing.INDIC_BRACEMATCH
>>> buffer.indic_style[INDIC_BRACEMATCH] = buffer.INDIC_DOTBOX
>>> buffer.indic_alpha[INDIC_BRACEMATCH] = 255
>>> buffer.indic_outline_alpha[INDIC_BRACEMATCH] = 100

I was able to put this in my properties.lua and it worked (but the dots
are a bit hard to see).
