Regarding the recent change of default-quoting style,
what do you think about the attached patch,
enabling to set the default style during './configure' ?

We should endeavor to avoid behavior forks like that. Besides, such a change would violate the GNU Coding Standards, which say, "No '--enable' option should ever substitute one useful behavior for another useful behavior. The only proper use for '--enable' is for questions of whether to build part of the program
or exclude it."
