Alright.  I mostly use the backticks because it's also Markdown.  I'm
fine with $($()) though ;).

That's a good reason.  I was mostly responding to "top-level gitignore
considered harmful" [1], but with the limited number of files in the
GPGME repo, I don't expect Git efficiency to become an issue.  I'll
send over a single-gitignore version of that patch (off list), once I
write it up.
