Maybe that should depend on the output format.  ``Example'' does IMHO look not 
really goot in the text terminal.  Many manpages use these quote (maybe since 
they are correct for typeset output) but this appears ugly to me in the text 
terminal (the characters are not symmetrical).

So would it make sense to leave the straight quotes for typewritten output and 
use ``correct'' quotes for typeset output?
