How so?

I was thinking that choosing one and enforcing it would be the
consistency.  Agreed that " '' " is probably more widely used across the
wiki/docs, thus making it easier to get consistency ...

What I was unclear on is the way the shell interprets the order; it
seems to make a difference in some cases, where we'd want to change our
usage per the requirement:

13:49 < mmcgrath> quaid: it only really makes a difference when you're dealing 
                  with variables.
13:50 < mmcgrath> In which case it depends on whether you want to print $var  
                  or the value of $var

Sounds like " '' " is the chosen way.  I'll make that clear on the
WikiEditing page.
