Now i really think you are going too far.  These BSD mdoc(7)
macros are not your private property or only in sofar as BSD does
no longer use groff at all, at least for manual purposes.  But
that surely does not get better when someone who has no conscious
contact with usage of those macros (given that Linux prefers
man(7)) selfishly decides over a style issue and then starts
trampling over those macros.  That said, feel free to do whatever
you want.  But if you move away from americanish `' quotes, why
the heck is it '' that you go for, instead of "".
Thank you, and good night.
