Now I have tried it again in various modes. I just noticed that the
pairing doesn't work in some modes which obviously has good reasons.
It is not required in text-mode, message-mode, lisp-mode and may be
some other modes.

But in python-mode, there is a strange behaviour. Steps:

1. ./src/emacs -Q
2. open a temporary python file (or switch mode)
3. Following is the behaviour with keystrokes

Key Strokes    Output
'              '' <point before 2nd tick>
''             ''' <point before 3rd tick>
'''            '''''' <point before 4th tick>
''''           ''''''' <point before 5th tick>

Is this the expected behaviour?
