In my experiments with Unicode in source code, input was the least of
the concerns (as long as Emacs was used.) Display was the no-no part.
Not because Emacs bugs or limitations, by the way.

If the goal is to improve input for other scripts, I have no idea how
forcing curly quotes in Emacs' source code will help.

Maybe I skipped the post that described the improvements, but what I've
seem so far is "because it is modern", "because beginners think our
current style is weird", "because other GNU projects use it", "because
this will help improve our Unicode support"... Am I missing something?
