What's to guess?  I said clearly in _each_ of my posts
to this bug thread, starting with the report itself,
that it's about the use of such chars in the Lisp source
files - in particular in `info.el'.

I mentioned that I tried to `grep' to see if other Lisp
files were similarly affected, and that it seemed that
`info.el' was the only one affected at the top level
of the source-code tree, at least.

Each time, I spoke of Lisp files and of `info.el'
specifically.  At no time did I talk about the presence
of curly quotes in Info buffers (we've been down that
dead-end road before).

That someone could misunderstand my message here is
not so simple, I think, but it is understandable - it
happens.  But to come back after it has been made
doubly clear and suggest that I somehow made you guess
what the problem is seems a bit unfair.

I don't know what kind of patch is needed.  And anyway
Eli has said that he doesn't see any reason to care
about users copy+pasting our Lisp source code. Won't
