single quotes in the manpage

In the manpage, all occurrences of a single quote (or apostrophe) are
preceded by a backslash. This means that these get turned into acute
accents by groff; here's the relevant part of the groff manpage:
\' The acute accent ; same as \(aa. Unescaped: apostrophe, right
quotation mark, single quote (ASCII 0x27).
I think all these backslashes should be removed, as the acute accent
won't display correctly on all terminals and aren't intended anyway
This concerns both rsync.1 and rsyncd.conf.5 .
