Some old broken X fonts do have the "wrong" glyphs in those

there's a better way to get rid of the eyesore than using a broken
font.  By modifying the display table like this

 (aset standard-display-table ?` [342392])  ; ‘
 (aset standard-display-table ?' [342393])  ; ’

you can get proper, nice looking single quotes.  This assumes that
your font has the required glyphs [U+2018 and U+2019], of course.

This would be a nice minor mode for Gnus and other purposes, how can
it be done so it's suitable for a hook or a minor mode?

(setq buffer-display-table (make-display-table))
(aset buffer-display-table ?` [342392])  ; ‘
(aset buffer-display-table ?' [342393])  ; ’
