This doesn't make sense.  The regexp "\\s(" stands for "any opening parenthesis, as defined by the current syntax", so it would usually include all of ([{.

The regexps "\\s[" ans "\\s{" don't mean anything AFAIK.

See here for a concise explanation of Emacs regexps: http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/RegularExpression

And BTW the error message is wrong, it should be "Not looking at open parenthesis nor quote"
