Works for me. I think that patch will help. Would it be worth updating
`backward-word' as well, it has essentially the same docstring.

Is the case for this when two words of different scripts are next to
each other? I suppose that'd make sense if they also didn't have a
space between them for some reason (probably possible with some
languages)

Since the right quote is part of the General Punctuation script
(afaict), what if some scripts, like that one, were treated neutrally?
That is, they derived their behavior solely from the syntax entry.
This is probably a bad idea for a number of reasons I don't even know
I don't know.
