Since I use the ETL fonts at a 24x12 resolution, this is true for me
also -- the ` and ' glyphs are *designed* to be used as left and right

The ETL fonts aren't XFree86 fonts...

I agree.  Whatever solution is found, there should be an indication
for `C-u C-x =' that those characters (probably) come from a different
font.  Additionally, it should be possible to exactly specify which
font is used for those two characters.
