I am not saying that 69 levels of backquote should not be defined. I am
saying that it should not be encouraged for people writing programs.
I rather doubt that any users, upon seeing the explanation in the manual,
will then rush to their terminals so use triple-nested backquotes. It's
not something that people will be "encouraged" to use; in fact, most people
will have a very hard time figuring out why you'd ever use it. So I don't
think there's much to worry about.
