  I object :-)  Single chevrons are not used at all in typography from
France.  I read however on https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillemet that
they are in Switzerland, hence if that can be confirmed there could be
an option for Swiss French; but in the mean time I think that the
current setup should stay as it is.
