When editing a Markdown document with electric-quote-mode enabled, the
experience is not optimal because ` (backtick) in Markdown is a syntax
element (for introducing code spans and blocks), but is converted by
electric-quote-mode.  Also ` and ' inside code spans and blocks continue
to insert curly quotes where they shouldn't.  I propose the following:

- Provide an alternative behavior of electric-quote-mode where ` doesn't
  trigger replacement and ' can insert left or right curly quotes,
  depending on whether it follows a space or similar (newline, beginning
  of buffer, opening parenthesis).

- Provide a way to disable electric-quote-mode for certain regions,
  effectively the inverse of the existing electric-quote-string etc.
  This could be in the form of syntactic elements or text properties.

I've attached a patch. It doesn't cover all cases, though; e.g. an unterminated Markdown code span is not supported yet.
