Ah, it sounds like you're worried about misuses like (format filename),
where FILENAME might contain arbitrary characters including curved
quotes.  However, code like that has always been buggy, as FILENAME may
include %% (or % followed by something else, of course) and the
%-sequences would be misinterpreted too.

They can, but they usually don't. Or the caller could be wise and escape '%'.

On the other hand, I thought we wanted to encourage more usage of unicode everywhere, probably even including filenames.

I can imagine a filename with ‘’ in it without trying too hard: think of an MP3 file the name of which reflects the song's title. And take a classical piece, with a complex title. They have quotes on occasion.

It's not limited to filenames, those are just the first thing that came to mind.
