I didn't have any plans to join this discussion and I'm not sure what
I can add.  FWIW, I exclusively use an English locale.  Anyway, I've
read through the whole bug log now.  I personally agree that these
quotation marks are quite ugly and I don't see why the release notes
shouldn't mention this.  However, they should take GOTO Masanori's
objections into account.  Why cannot the release notes say that the
current style in non-UTF8 is ugly and that there is a discussion going
on about how they will be presented in the future?  I think that would
take both sides into account.
