Curly quotes are default behaviour of official texinfo.tex; AFAIK
LilyPond hackers have patched it and put it in Lily sources to get
straight ASCII quotes instead of curly quotes.  I've recently taken
texinfo.tex verbatim from Texinfo CVS (it will be in 2.11.28) because:

1) we need latest official texinfo.tex to compile PDF manual in
languages other than English,

2) an option has recently been added in official texinfo.tex to get
straight ASCII quotes instead of curly quotes, and this option is
actually used in the manual (btw. there are no other Texinfo docs with
ly @example's or @lilypond with [verbatim], are they?).

Thanks to 2), we no more need to keep a version of texinfo.tex different
with the official one, which saves us merging work that would have been
necessary for 1).

Yes, and I've been one of the devils since 7 months >:->
If don't use the HTML manuals because you're on Windows and images of
music don't show in the splitted manuals, you'll be happy to see this
issue is fixed in 2.11.28 docs.
