Anyway, just want to pick out a single from all your points: the
single quote correction. The reason why it's off by default is
because it is not clever enough to tell when an apostrophe (as in
Rock 'n' roll, in the worst case with exactly that spelling) or an
actual quote is meant, as the key pressed in either case is the same.
The compromise then of course is that we get neither typographically
correct... which seems to lead lots of people to misappropriate
accents for apostrophes.

Well, if I understand correctly, it seems better to not set a
typographic must-have for a very common character because of a few
border-line cases? The same could be told about the French double-quotes
which *are* correctly setup and rendered but can bring some "problems"
when one wants actual " (angle second) marks.

Sorry, I don't understand that reasoning.
