Language & Text's "Auto punctuation" description mentions features that don't exist

Bug Description

The description text for "Auto punctuation" on the "Language & Text" page currently says:

"Adds a full-stop, and any missing quotes or brackets, when you tap Space twice."

As the ubuntu-keyboard doesn't currently support completing quotes or brackets.

<>: "Until quote/bracket completion is implemented, the caption for “Auto punctuation” should be “Inserts a period when you tap Space twice.”"

We should get the design updated then, Matthew can you do a string recommendation?

Is there any plan to fix the osk as well?

I've logged a bug for the keyboard side of this here: but it almost certainly won't be implemented for RTM.
