Plus if Chris Lattner has any strong opinions about the behavior of single quotes, which might be the case given the existing code for handling them in Lexer.cpp, backticks are a damn good alternative. I'd still like to wait to hear back from him or someone else on the core team about that one.

Support for single quoted literals like 'x' was a legacy feature for C-like character literals that we explored before the design of Character went to where it is now.  I’d be fine ripping it out and repurposing it.
