First, thanks to all for your opinions and judgements.

I agree to the following:

1. Consistency is important.
2. Single quotes are less noisy.
3. Triple double quotes are to be preferred over triple single quotes.

I also believe that transferring habits from C, Rust or whatever to
Python doesn't make much sense as Python does not distinguish between a
character and string from a type perspective.

Of course, this is my subjective result, and others (may) have
different opinions.
