This sounds reasonable, though I suppose it should be controlled by an option,
since some people may prefer the current behavior where `` and '' are the only
convenient ways to get curved double quotes.

Also, shouldn't it always replace " with a curved quote of one flavor of the
other? I'm puzzled as to why one would want " to stay straight, when the option
is enabled.

OK, here's a patch.
