Shouldn't lquote and rquote be something different from the straight-up 
single "quote"?

In the two courier fonts I can see on my vanilla OpenOffice (admittedly 
they are TTF, and I don't know where they come from) U+0027 is a single 
vertical typewriter "quote"

In the font called Courier 10 pitch, the paired single quotes are in 
U+0060 and U+00B4.
"B4 would be in the range of a 256-char TFM.
