I don't think I missed anything?  A doc editor knows that @q
produces a single quote, so they might expect that <q> would
also produce a single quote.  Conversely, somebody who's been
editing lots of snippets and starts doing doc work might be
unpleasantly surprised that @q produces a single quote.

I'm not suggesting that the automatic script is wrong... I guess
it's more that I wish that we'd chosen different macros back when
@q and @qq were introduced.
