Maybe it is also an idea to display them thingies as open/close quote
only in cases where we know they are meant that way.  One example is
in docstrings.  There is highlighting in docstrings (and a hyperlink
in *Help* buffers) that kicks in for cases where the characters are
used as open/close quote.

Maybe it is strange that the same character is displayed differently
in different locations of the same file/buffer, but OTOH, font-lock is
all about doing this.  It normally just changes the color or weight,
but why can't it also change the glyph if that seems to be a good
