I find the opposite. U+2018 and U+2019 look very similar, while ` and
' are noticeably different. From memory, the original change was
proposed for aesthetic reasons because a lot of documentation uses `
and ' as quotation marks, and the original characters are so
different that they look strange in that context to someone used to
double ' or the Unicode quote characters.
