Kind of.  If TeXinfo's default is now to use curly braces, can't it be
switched off?  I did not use TeXinfo myself - it must have been the
Emacs' makefile who did this.  If Emacs' makefile orders TeXinfo to use
borked quotes, Emacs itself should turn isearch folding so that I'm able
to look for them in Info buffers, no?  It's a matter of consistency,
isn't it?
