So, what is your opinion what the perl docs should do?

(1) Replace smart backticks with U+0027 or

(2) Replace smart backticks with U+2018 and smart ticks with U+2019

(3) ??

Abigail has opined against (2), but if people will want to do (2) in a
few years anyway, a better alternative than (1) would be good to have.
Would you (for example) support the idea that POD could special-case
U+2018/19 and map them to U+0027? Any better idea?
