I can follow up and nag people for a while, sure. It's not a big deal.

Nagging people is not what I had in mind.

To make things easier we could install the attached patch, so that
people can continue to type ` and ' like they're used to, when editing

The basic idea seems fine. If we agree to go back to using `', we can use an `eval' block to add two font-lock rules, to render the quotes in a curly fashion when viewer in Emacs.

Alternatively we could revert commit
4235d2d9eaa3b64d3172f6c60f1e71704795af89 and go back to straight quoting
'like this' in etc/NEWS, as was done after my first patch today. That
would be adequate too, even though (as John said) it is less consistent
with the rest of the documentation.

Consistent with what? Post-rendered .info files?

The main point is that grave quoting
`like this' is not right in user-facing documentation.

Where do we show it to the users, aside from inside Emacs?
