I gave it a shot in master commit
68280c5ee9b87d874ffa7c111b3cac7e634cee22. There are a couple of followup
patches, so that docstrings and diagnostics prefer directed to neutral
quotes when quoting code and data.  Comments welcome.

I'd like to point out that since `format' doesn't translate quotes anymore, the "\\`%s\\'" example doesn't apply: we're unlikely to encounter beginning-of-string and end-of-string anchors in the messages displayed to the user.

With that in mind, why can't format-message translate ` and ' to curlies? Then we won't need the latter in the source code.
