I didn't complain.  You are confusing me with someone else.  I have no
problem with these quotes, the way they are currently supported by
Emacs.  You won't find me arguing against them in this thread (or any
other thread).

What I did was describe the situation on Windows in this respect in
response to a specific post that IMO misrepresented it.  I believe
Emacs behavior when displaying curved quotes on the Windows console is
adequate, but that doesn't mean the problems we are facing there don't
exist, or can be dismissed or easily solved.  I reported one such
minor problem lately, and Paul fixed it in a way that I consider

Red herring.  I never said nor did anything to the contrary.  I
actually wrote some (small part) of the code to support this feature.
You are confusing me with someone else.
