Strings: double versus single quotes

The interpreter prefers single-quotes

>>> "single or double"
'single or double'

I read a recent quote from Raymond Hettinger saying that the
Python world prefers double ones. If Mr Hettinger is around i'd
like to ask him where he pulled the theory from

Guess a personal choice thing ~
