That _is_ a rather strong argument...

The main reason I'd like a customization option along with the introduction of
the feature, is that it's a departure from *very* long-standiing practice, so
unless you happen to like Unicode quotes, I'm predicting that several people
will want a way to get back the sort of display they've been used to seeing
since antiquity.

Do any others object to having a customization option along with release of
the feature?  I'm cross-posting this to Emacs-devel to get more opinions.

The question is: Should `text-quoting-style' be customizable in 25.1, or
should it be a variable, thus requiring Lisp code to change it for now?
