Max can probably comment on this -- I think he had some reservations  
about making the syntax official, and I made some changes which lost  
all the ASCII plist comments (although they're still in the  
repository) which contained his to-do.

Is SmartyPants safe for code? I.e. I often have some form of code or  
data format listed in my Markdown files where " means " and ' means  
'. When I want “curly quotes” I type that. Though I don't use the  
nicer ’ character.
