Just a question for Hans or Taco: would it be possible to create a
command sequence that would avoid doing the auto-replacement even when
trep is on? Say, \textapostrophe, \asciiapostrophe, \textquote,
\asciiquote or some similar name.

One option would be to automatically create a "virtual font" with
duplicate of 0x27 at some constant slot and then access that glyph
(even though that might have consequences for searching in PDFs). This
is ugly, but maybe there is some better and more elegant approach.
