All programs? None of the popular programming text editors do that.

You might be thinking of LibreOffice Writer.

With all this in mind, I’ve been watching these exploding
threads with a mixture of hope and dread, because the modernization
effort would be very nice for me, but I’m seeing a lot of older
people whose opinions and efforts I respect argue for "just use
old-style ascii quotes."

Since you're writing prose, the discussion should be irrelevant to you.

It's only about which quotes to use in the Emacs Lisp source files.

For inserting proper punctuation marks automatically when writing prose, you should check out http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/TypographicalPunctuationMarks
