Your interpretation has evolved.  Consider
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-bash/2005-07/msg00047.html
when you argue seemingly the exact opposite: that quoted strings should
be recursively parsed inside ``.

I will, as I said, look for a backwards-compatible solution.  That may
involve finding a different way to solve the original problem that
prompted the change.
