Thanks to you Jonathan.

Yes, I agree with you. Actually I did it that way to stay consistent with the
rest of the file although I noticed something was wrong with the rst markup.

After investigating today, this file comes from an old LaTeX file that later
was converted to rst with some tool. That tool replaced different LaTeX
commands from the original tex file by backticks (minus the one from my fix).
After recovering the original tex file and compiling it I could figure out
what was wrong and see the original intention of the authors in the LaTeX
compiled result: some words/expressions appear 'quoted' while filenames are
rendered in a mono font.
So even the current Sphinx output is wrong since the conversion of this
file, as everything gets currently rendered in italics.

Last version of the tex file can be recovered at:

Conversion to rst was done in:

I'll see what I can do to replace all those backticks by the proper rst
markup according to the original tex file.
