Smart quote marks in Hebrew and English

When tools>autocorrect>autocorrect options>localized options>single quotes replace is turned on (which it is by default in this version) the smart quote marks work fine in English (pointing inwards to the word), but in Hebrew, a Right-To-Left language, the smart quote marks point *outwards* from the word. 

If you manually change the symbols of the quote marks in tools>autocorrect>autocorrect options>localized options>single quotes, they will work in Hebrew (point inwards) but be wrong in English (point outwards).

It seems there is no way to tell Libreoffice Writer to use a different set of symbols for different languages. 

This bug seems to be related, but is not identical to this bug: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88270
