Thanks to all, Eli Zaretskii, Michael Albinus, and Drew Adams.

Yes, the question, as Eli pointed out, was about quoting (E)LISP
elements (variables, functions, etc.) in *commit messages*... In
Emacs it's so cool the fontification of comments `like-this'. So
I do have the habit of using the same style in commit messages.

What do you suggest? Is it ok to be consistent using Emacs style
in commit messages when typing Emacs' elements?

There is also ‘this’ kind of quoting in Emacs. Is it just `this'
rendered into `this', or should you write ‘this’ to begin with?

Just to rephrase.  In Emacs I write elisp elements `like-this'.
Is it the "right" style or should I write ‘like-this’.  Then in
*commit messages* I keep writing elisp elements `like-this' [or
should I write ‘like-this’?], but not non-elisp elements, which
I quote 'like-this' or "like-this"...

Forgive me... I don't want to raise confusion.  I hope that you
all may find reasoning in my bad writing "style"... ;)
