Is there a way to parse with smart punctuation?

Let me offer some more detail -- seems like this issue doesn't have much detail to act on.

One of the features I thought would be interesting from using Jekyll is "smart" typography, which comes from the SmartyPants spec implemented as an extension in the RedCarpet markdown parser, as noted in Jekyll docs.

To give some examples, that would mean turning text like this:

"some curly quotes" 'like this' -- they're pretty awesome --- yo

...into this:

“some curly quotes” ‘like this’ – they're pretty awesome — yo

By no means do I think this should be a default, but it would be interesting to add -- I love {en,em}-dashes in particular. :)
