OK, calling it a dealbreaker is fair. Thanks.

I've done some experimenting now with a new attribute "apos" which
expands to a lone SQ. It seems to work fine across the different tools.
The rule could be that all ' should be {apos}. That's a quite
aggressive rule in a sense. It could be narrowed down to something like
"... if the paragraph contains other quotation, such as backticks or
single quotes", but that's probably just overly complicating things.

I don't see an immediate need to go s/'/{apos}/ just because we can.
We've identified five problematic spots, four of which are with the tool
we're moving away from.
