How does their reaction to `...' compare with
their reaction to `M-x', `C-u C-x =', Lisp, and all the rest?

They think Lisp is pretty cool, that control-meta-whatever is a pain, and that quoting `like this' is something a hidebound greybeard would do.

Although I don't have any formal research, I do have some experience. Over the past decade my assistants and I have introduced Emacs to an average of about one new user per day. Most were age 20 or less. Many stop using Emacs soon after they learn it. I'd like to help improve the retention rate.
