bug#5862: 24.0.50; French quotation marks used in a German manner in tex

In GNU Emacs' own tex-mode French double-quotes are not interpreted and fontified correctly, and so is the text between (and outside of) them:

Wir sagten ihm: »Erzähle uns doch, warum du kein Sirbadj essen willst?«
Der Hauswirt aber sagte ihm: »Ich schwöre bei diesem und jenem, du musst
Sirbadj essen.« Er erwiderte dann: »Es gibt keinen Schutz und keine Macht,
außer bei Gott dem Erhabenen; wenn es sein muss, so will ich meine Hand
vierzigmal mit Wasser, vierzigmal mit Seife und vierzigmal mit Salzen, im
ganzen hundertundzwanzigmal waschen.«%

Here the Frech quotes are used in a German manner, i.e., » starts the quotation and « ends it. Maybe it's better when this mode tries to determine which quotation mark comes first instead of assuming that « always comes first, followed by a final ». http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quotation_mark,_non-English_usage gives some explanation and examples.
