Hello, Stefan.

First of all, sorry that my last post was a bit irritable.

I find the state of quoting as of Emacs 24.5 to be quite acceptable.

It's an Emacs tradition that controversial new features are optional.
Curly quotes is such a new feature.  Can you assure us all that this
tradition will be upheld with respect to curly quotes?

If there will be a configuration mechanism to replace it which is
capable of configuring Emacs such that the quoting behaviour is
unchanged from 24.5, then I agree it can be got rid of.
