Blog posts consisting of code. If you replace neutral apostrophes  
with curved ones in PHP, you end up with parse errors, meaning anyone  
wanting to use the code has to go through and modify it. Also, there  
are probably other bugs in the code.

It isn't really going out of your way anyway, as you just have to  
remove a default filter.
