Hmm -- I can see that it has a small advantage, but even so...

I don't really mind whether groff uses `foo' or 'foo' when rendering for
ascii/latin1/whatever -- however, I feel that if Michael would otherwise
use \(aq for quotes, then we *really do need* to address this issue.
Perhaps optionally allowing the `old' behaviour (if possible) would ease
some of the pain?

Personally, I would prefer that quotes render sensibly in utf8, html and
dvi, and that correctly written man pages do not need any modification.
Also, the use of `foo' is very convenient (even if it no longer appears
balanced in the source).
