I'd think that "common modern practice" for GNU projects is described in
(info "(gettext) po/LINGUAS").

IIUC, the description there recommends that the usual "ugly" quotes
should be used in source files and translated at run time according to
the locale.

So, provided things are not messed up by a third party, for the en
locale you get curly quotes only if you set a variant locale like
address@hidden or address@hidden (after making sure that your systems supports
those locales).  E.g., bash provides such message files.
