I was wondering if "HEAD{tilde}, master{tilde}3" gets formatted
incorrectly and leaving one of them as literal "~" was a deliberate
workaround.  I've seen a quirk like that in AsciiDoc before, where
one pair of some quote that behaves sensibly starts to misbehave
when the second pair is added on the same line.
