I think a lot of people would dislike writing all their strings in backticks as 
well. It may not even be that easy to type on some keyboard layouts; outside of 
coding, it's a pretty obscure character.

A prefix syntax also has the advantage that you can still have u'strong' and 
u"weak" variants, and it has precedent in other languages, whereas `foo` has a 
strong association with code (Perl, Markdown come to mind).
