Hmm... these good arguments are getting in the way of my tirade.

Alright, I will let this go without a customization option, again. Alan, you
can setq `text-quoting-style' for now in your .emacs, although doing so may
get in the way of finding more bugs.

Let's see what the populace says, and how many pitchforks are raised. It's
quite possible we may revert this whole feature in 26, but let's get some
genuine public reaction before deciding the matter.

Within the Emacs developers, I now see strong votes against, some votes for
(are they as strong?), but I still don't know what the World At Large is going
to think.
