+In Python, single-quoted strings and double-quoted strings are the
+same. This PEP do not make a recommendation for this. Pick a rule
+and stick to it. When a string contains single or double quote
+characters, however, use the other one to avoid backslashes in the
+string. It improves readability.
+For triple-quoted strings, always use double quote characters to be
+consistent with the docstring convention in PEP 257.
