I'm going to mark this topic as solved, but I'm still surprised there isn't an easy way to use unbalanced brackets inside of an argument. It's a syntactic problem: The \newenvironment command needs to know where its arguments end, and allowing unbalanced braces would result in ambiguities. It is po...
