    Change all quotes in strings and comments to the new GNU standard. · 096e7457

    The asymmetric quotes used by GNU in the past (`...') don't render
    nicely on modern systems.  We now use two \x27 characters ('...').
    
    The proper solution would be to use the correct Unicode symmetric
    quotes here.  However this has the disadvantage that the system
    requires Unicode support.  We don't want that today.  If Unicode is
    available a generated po file can be used to output proper quotes.  A
    simple sed script like the one used for en@quote is sufficient to
    change them.
    
    The changes have been done by applying
    
      sed -i "s/\`\([^'\`]*\)'/'\1'/g"
    
    to most files and fixing obvious problems by hand.  The msgid strings in
    the po files were fixed with a similar command.
