Two-single-quotes ('') in texinfo files normally represent
double-close-quote.

There are three cases where this is incorrect in the
Maxima texi files: the documentation for double-single-
quote itself (in Command.texi) and the docs for DEFINE
and TRANSLATE_FILE (function.texi).

Presumably there is some way to quote them, but I
don't know texinfo conventions....

Note that within code examples (@example) double-
single-quote is correctly preserved, and in literature
citations (e.g. in Numerical.texi) is it being used
correctly.
