#9150: Wrong type of quotes are hard coded

Comment(by jidanni):

 Note this is not just an i18n issue,
 see #9100.

 One might think one could just use the methods of
 #8929 to turn off wptexturize(), however there are some independent
 occurrences of wptexturize() scattered throughout the code, beyond any
 filter's grasp.

 One might also think that a hook could be added at the beginning of
 wptexturize(), giving one the opportunity just to return the input
 unscathed. However, as wptexturize() is used in many different roles
 beyond just rendering text for browsing, who knows what that might

 For goodness sakes. !WordPress should give the user an option to just opt-
 out of
 wptexturize() (#9100). Would !MediaWiki ever think of letting one opt-in?
