While we are at it, we could agree on quotation marks.  I know that it
sounds like bikeshedding…  However, it doesn’t look right when some
people use `' and others use ''.

“Although GNU programs traditionally used 0x60 (‘`’) for opening and 0x27
(‘'’) for closing quotes, nowadays quotes ‘`like this'’ are typically
rendered asymmetrically, so quoting ‘"like this"’ or ‘'like this'’
typically looks better.” [1]

I’d prefer '' but will use `' if we agree on that.
