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.
