[Xy-pic] brackets for one of two xymatrix diagrams in xy

I would like to ask for some help adding brackets in xy. Within a
single xy diagram, I've created two diagrams with xymatrix, as the
attached PDF file shows:
￼The left-hand side xymatrix represents a linear algebra augmented
matrix, and so I would like to add brackets around it, that is "["
and "]" in the customary manner. But I need to be able to connect the
two diagrams with arrows. I've tried several approaches, but I've run
into four problems:
(i) While xy can draw braces ( "{" and "}" ) and parentheses ( "("
and ")" ), it seems that it does not draw brackets. Is this correct?
(ii) If xy cannot draw brackets, I would hope to use parentheses. But
I have not been able to position the parentheses around the entire
first xymatrix. How might I do this?
(iii) Related to (ii), if I try to group the xymatrix on the lhs
using braces, I can't connect to the rhs with arrows. So I'm looking
for a solution that will allow me to draw arrows from the xymatrix on
the lhs to the one on the rhs.
(iv) The xy parentheses I've been able to draw are pretty thick. How
can I make them thinner?
The xy code I'm trying to use is below (I use the package ps4pdf, but
I've not included that code here):
\def\determinantdiagram#1#2#3#4{%
\xy%
\xymatrix"*"@1@=0mm at M=0mm at R=.5mm at C=.5mm{#1}
\POS(#2,#3)
\xymatrix at 1@=0pt at M=0pt at R=.5mm{#4}
\endxy}
\determinantdiagram{
*+<1mm>[F-:<10pt>]{k_1} \ar@/_.7pc/[ddddrrrrr] & l_1 & 0 & \cdots &
0 & *+<1mm>[F-:<10pt>]{b_1} \\
0 & k_2 & l_2 & \ddots & \vdots & b_2 \\
\vdots & \ddots & \ddots & \ddots & 0 & \vdots \\
0 & \cdots & 0 & k_{N-1} & l_{N-1} & b_{N-1} \\
*+<1mm>[F-:<10pt>]{l_N} \ar@/^1pc/[uuuurrrrr] & -l_N l_1 & \cdots &
-l_N l_1 \cdots l_{N-2} & k_N & *+<1mm>[F-:<10pt>]{b_N}
}{70}{-14}{
*+<1mm>[F-:<10pt>]{k_1 b_N}\ar@{<-}@/_7mm/["*"rrrrr] & *+<1mm>
[F-:<10pt>]{- l_N b_1}\ar@{<-}@/^5mm/["*"ddddrrrr]
}
Thanks very much,
Roger
