Hmm ... and I changed my mind and would now find `A` a reasonable choice. :-P

` and ' *are* different characters. They *have* to look different, otherwise
they are pointless. Every Unix shell considers them functionallly different.
Nobody has complained )to me) so far. If a font doesn't show a clear difference,
then it's the font that is broken, not the glyph. And then, with proper syntax
coloring a character and a string constant have different colors.

Alternatively, take TeX's syntax:  `\A  ... for extra geek points.  ;-)
