Do any others object to having a customization option along with release of
the feature? I'm cross-posting this to Emacs-devel to get more opinions.
The question is: Should `text-quoting-style' be customizable in 25.1, or
should it be a variable, thus requiring Lisp code to change it for now?
If a user's opinion counts, I now like the curved quotes (thanks Paul and others!). The quotes look great! There was initial resistance from my side as I saw a lot of inconsistencies. But by now, all the inconsistencies that at least I saw are resolved. Earlier I wanted to switch back to quotes being displayed as ` and ', but not anymore :).
So I do not mind the quotes being displayed curly by default and that option still not being a defcustom.
If we see a lot of emacs users unhappy because of this, then may be this is converted to defcustom in 25.2? Because as Eli said:
