The solution that mode suggests for spell-checking will not work well
with modern spellers (aspell and hunspell), because they don't have
the curly apostrophe/quote character in their *.aff files' rules, like
they do with the ASCII apostrophe.

So if we want this to become our default, we need changes in
ispell.el, to replace ’ with ' before we sent it to the speller.  Or
maybe recommend users to install *.aff files that already support ’,
assuming such dictionaries exist.
