I have been seriously considering font-lock approaches but so far they

For example, how would font-lock alter the quotes that Emacs outputs in
batch diagnostics?

It probably won't, you'll need a different function.

OK, that can be the format-message function already discussed. So the font-lock proposal isn't intended to address the problem of diagnostics, or of info or help buffers for that matter; it's intended only to address the issue of displaying docstrings to a developer who's editing Elisp code. Is that correct?
