After annoying you with questions about sentence ends in various
languages, here is one about quotation marks.

I'm currently using a function like this to automatically produce
appropriate quotation marks:

   def @Quote right x address@hidden @Case {
                                    {de German} @Yield ,,x``
                                    {fr French} @Yield «~x~»
                                           else @Yield ``x''}}

Now I thought I could add some more languages; if there's interest, I
could also create patches for standard.ld and dsf.  Here's what I've
found so far--I'd appreciate comments and additions (the list contains
some languages not yet supported by Lout, and misses some supported
