 I assume this is controversial, but I want wptexturize to *always* be a
 no-op.  I know I'm not alone on this.  There exists a 3rd-party
 "wpuntexturize" plugin, but it is insufficient; even using that plugin, I
 keep running in to places where texturization is happening anyway.

 Rather than making us play whack-a-mole with all the places it gets turned
 back on, can't we please just have a checkbox to disable it globally?

 Alternately, if you would make wptexturize be a pluggable function, I
 could just re-define it.

 As it is, with each new release, I am forced to modify the source to add
 "return $text" as the first line of the function.
