On that topic I happen to agree with Markus Kuhn that ascii 0x60 should
not be used in place of quotation marks:
<http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs/quotes.html>. I believe that his
argument was convincing enough to get a number of the GNU projects to
stop doing this -- at least in gcc 4.x AFAIK. To me `this' looks much
worse than 'this'. I will celebrate the day that the last manpage that
does `this' is destroyed.
