from the catalogue:

  The csquotes package provides advanced facilities for inline and
  display quotations.  It is designed for a wide range of tasks
  ranging from the most simple applications to the more complex
  demands of formal quotations.  The facilities include commands,
  environments, and user-definable `smart quotes' which dynamically
  adjust to their context.  Quotation marks are switched automatically
  if quotations are nested and they can be adjusted to the current
  language if the babel package is available.  There are additional
  facilities designed to cope with the more specific demands of
  academic writing, especially in the humanities and the social
  sciences.  All quote styles as well as the optional active quotes
  are freely configurable.

i have installed the package, and perfunctorily updated the catalogue
to mention the beta release.
