Hmm... is it really Emacs that displayed it like this?  Or is it the
terminal which did it?  If it's Emacs, then I wonder how it figured it
needed to do that

I haven't looked at the details, but I expect Emacs looks at the locale and discovers that it's unibyte. At least, that's how I did it: by starting xterm in an Ubuntu 15.04 environment where LC_ALL=en_US.iso885915, and then running emacs -nw under xterm. In this situation, the attached patch to Emacs (which would have to be improved before installing) has the behavior of using underlined ` and ' to render curved single quotes.
