The problem I was thinking about is that in RTL script you would type
the right quote first, to serve as the opening quote.  That's because
the quotes are not mirrored by the bidirectional reordering for
display, like parentheses are.

So, if you expect to be able to use the same quote characters without reconfiguration according to language, then it won't work. Otherwise, you can simply configure the quotes the other way around, and it should work (and change the documentation of electric-quote-pairs to mention "open" and "close" rather than "left" and "right"). But I guess this is a solved design problem that simply needs integrating into electric-pair-mode…

Change installed.
