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
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.
