This sounds an excellent idea -- unless and until someone points out
that for them 
these combinations are already taken!

suggests 

global F4 = char(96) 
global F5 = char(180) 

-- although, as there are so many standards to chose from, you might
want to check 
with -asciiplot- from SSC that those numbers are right for you.

It might be a good idea if Stata were to map some key combinations 
(e.g. cntrl-L and cntrl-R) into the ascii values of the "magic" left 
and right quote signs.  If this were to work in the built-in editor, 
even if users were using different editors, they could, in a pinch, 
copy the characters over.
