This is a yodl thing -- we use normal apostrophes in the .yo file, and
the yodl2man script turns them into \' sequences.  I don't see an option
to turn this off, so if we think this is something that should be
changed, we'd probably have to tweak the Makefile rule to add a
sed-filter step after yodl2man.
