But you end up with » in the buffer, so I don't quite follow how
having > in sentence-end-base is useful...

Right:

« La Constitution du 3 septembre 1791 proclame la nécessité d'‹ une instruction
publique, commune à tous les citoyens, gratuite à l'égard des parties
d'enseignement indispensables pour tous les hommes ›. »

That example is also interesting because it has the full stop before the
», while I was wondering whether the French did that (or put it after
the »), so I guess that answers that.

So unless anybody objects, I'm adding › and » to the regexp.
