If the community think it's feasible, in PHP 9, 10, whatever, it must be
deprecated asap.
If you think PHP should use a different syntax for unicode strings in
future, you vote no.
It's as simple as that. I am asking to reserve a particular syntax for
something that could be needed in some years.

backtick to execute a shell command is fairly standard in unix shell scripting.

JavaScript is not used for unix shell scripting, php is. Not commonly, but I've used it more than once - especially when I already have a php class that does something I need to do from a shell script. It's a lot faster to write the shell script in PHP than to port the various shell scripts to python.

There is no good reason to remove it, and use of a back tick for executing shell commands has a long history in many scripting languages.
