In the manpage I wrote, I wanted to use English guillemets (‘’). This lead to errors and I gave up, replacing them by `'. Guess what? Groff understood what I wanted and put nice Unicode guillemets in the ouptut! I am quite amazed, even if it looks like a strange hack to me.

It's not a hack, it's an old, documented behaviour.
