Issue #16495 has been updated by marcandre (Marc-Andre Lafortune).

Assignee set to matz (Yukihiro Matsumoto)

I fail to see the actual gain.

This would introducing potential incompatibilities. For example, I remember [parsing using these quotes myself](https://github.com/marcandre/backports/blob/master/lib/backports/1.8.7/kernel/__method__.rb#L4) (this code isn't used for recent rubies so  doing the change wouldn't actually affect it).

Please reject this.

Feature #16495: Inconsistent quotes in error messages
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16495#change-83963

* Author: Kolano (Kenneth Kolano)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: matz (Yukihiro Matsumoto)
* Target version: 
----------------------------------------
Error messages use inconsistent pairs of quotes, for instance:

```
-e:1:in `<main>': undefined local variable or method `foo' for main:Object (NameError)
```

where a back tick is used on the left-hand side, and a single quote is used on the right.

The same quotes should be used on either side of the elements being quoted.
