I know.

To tell you the truth, a few months ago I started a patch changing ` to
$lq and ' to $rq.  Which would at least decrease the size of the patch
for somebody who wants to change it.

Then I decided it simply wasn't worth my time.  I mean, there are people
rightly complaining about _real_ bugs in Libtool.

So, unless the other developers disagree, I'd probably accept a patch
(against HEAD only) doing just that.  But I clearly disagree with
localizing libtool completely unless someone can point out a way to do
it without incurring _any_ overhead (time & space) for those who don't
want to use it (not even speaking about the enormous effort necessary
for translating the documentation).
