[Bug-readline] single-quote character and string/char literals

[I'm assuming this is a readline issue; if it's not, I understand if you
ignore this.]

When I use readline (via rlwrap) with a Scheme language interpreter, I
wish I could disable the single-quote character ' behavior of changing
the "editing mode" to thinking the ' begins a string/character literal
and that it should look for the ending '.  In Scheme, ' is different and
the current ' behavior causes parenthesis/bracket matching to be
messed-up (paren matching is very helpful for Scheme :-)

I couldn't find any documentation or prior mailing list topics about
this.  Is there any way to change this behavior?

Thanks in advance,
