Slugs and special chars

When Wordpress generates a slug, the apostrophe mark is stripped.

Examples :

"I'm open" > im-open
"L'équipe" > lequipe
"Suzy's Place" > suzys-place

If the apostrophe is changed to "-" the auto generated slug will be more "readable" (and better for seo) :

"I'm open" > i-m-open
"L'équipe" > l-equipe
"Suzy's Place" > suzy-s-place

Maybe a constant to define what strategy to adopt ?
