Java's MessageFormat treats ' (single quote) as escape character, so this:

  $fmt = new MessageFormatter("en_US", "Jack's mother is {1, number} years old ");
  echo "result is:". $fmt->format(array(70));
  echo "pattern is:".$fmt->getPattern()."\n";

would produce:

result is:Jacks mother is {1, number} years old     
pattern is:Jacks mother is '{'1, number} years old

end of next Sunday (CET) on

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the website in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PECL better.

Now uses autoquote.
