  1. Ooh, bikeshed! What about the possibility of ` and ‘ for texts in C, but with localizations to the correct left and right quotes for unicode locales?

  2. Yup, those weird `quote’ quoting are really annoying – good to know that I’m not alone with that opinion :-)

  3. The prime source of evilness seems to be that it looks `ugly’. Once you’re used to it, it’s not ugly at all.

  4. LaTeX will happily display your undesired quotes in a desired way, and how the hell do I actually type unicode characters in Linux anyway? I never needed more than my compose key can handle… Actually, [compose], [‘], [‘] generates “´”, and after 5 minutes of trying I managed to find that [compose], [], [‘] generates “’”. Maybe I’ll start using them now ;-)
