Curly quotes

I have Marked 2 configured to use MultiMarkdown to convert straight quotes to curly (i.e., generate topographically correct quotes and punctuation). This works as expected for matched left and right quotes. But proper grammar for long-form prose such as a novel is to omit the closing quote mark at the end of a paragraph when the same speaker is continuing to speak. Marked 2 interprets the next opening quote mark as a straight quote. It is quite aggravating.

I've noticed that Typora interprets this correctly, but iA Writer and Ulysses work the same as Marked 2.

Although I imagine it is easier to code for matched quotes, is it that hard to include either a newline or matched quote to indicate a match?

    This is beyond my control, the typography features are built into the MultiMarkdown processor.
