is easier to read when pasted into a sentence than what the recent
update 175d38ca ("SubmittingPatches: document how to reference
previous commits", 2016-07-28) suggests to do, i.e.

While it may be easier to read due to the extra mark-up, the resulting text where such a quotation appears does not flow well, IMO. A commit message text that references another commit reads more fluently without the quotes around the summary line because the quoted text is not so much a quotation that must be marked, but a parenthetical statement.

I absolutely welcome the proposed change to gitk, because I always edit out the double-quotes.
