GNU documentation is not the only user of `' for ‘’ and
``'' for “”, that is also the way TeX specifies quotes.
And apostrophes.

Not to mention their use in source code.

As Miles wrote, some fonts make the glyphs hard to distinguish.
A few years ago I used to use 75dpi/lutRS08.bdf for xterms and
emacs.  (Really. :)  There is no where there to tell apart the
open and close glyphs.  OTOH, I now use misc/9x18.bdf and that
makes the glyphs easy to distinguish.  It is important to give
the users a single defcustom that the default behavior depends
on, as well as per mode and per buffer controls.
