Aren't ' and ` simply shorthands for the functions `quote' and
`backquote' respectively? (Well, ok, `quote' is a special form and
`backquote' is a macro, but that shouldn't make a difference.) I've
never used a macro to create code that requires a backquote, but I've
often done it with `quote'. Works like a charm.
