Indeed, the font I see in my Linux console renders them OK
(pre-XFree86-4 style), but I think you're sadly in a minority.

Curly quotes render just fine in my Linux console.  So it looks like
you're in an even smaller minority.

My request here is to figure out what *kind* of configurability is best.
Not whether configurability is desired.  But you're not very forthcoming
with information about the concrete problems you see with curly quotes,
so we're likely not going to be able to provide the best kind of
customizability for you.
