OK.  What I have done is to apply your patch, with a few changes, in
scratch/customize-quotes.  These changes concern text-quoting-style
being a user option rather than just a variable, acknowledging (with a
"seems to") that Emacs doesn't always correctly determine if certain
characters are displayable, and adding back the bit about the option
being "freely usable".  I think that's all.  In particular, there is no
longer a bit about binding t-q-s to the symbol grave to inhibit quote

If you want to check it for one last time, please do, otherwise I think
I should just merge it into emacs-26.
