The documentation patch says it's enabled by default.

It's enabled, but the variables that configure it make it inactive by default. I'll try to make this clearer in the documentation.

I don't think we should enable this by default, not even in

We can certainly hold off on the .dir-locals.el part for a bit, to see how it works for developers who want to try it.

Do we already have a way of displaying ‘..’ on terminals that cannot
display them (notably, some TTYs)?  If not, we should add that before
we install these changes, and those in bug #20385.  I don't think we
can let doc strings have glyphless characters.

I just now configured a terminal to refuse to display curved quotes, and when I used it Emacs displayed "‘like this’" as "\u2018like this\u2019" with underscores below the "\u2018" and the "\u2019". I could easily change it to display it as "`like this'" with underscores under the "`" and the "'", if you think that'd be a win.
