Why kdevelop uses single quotes in shell expressions?

I'm wondering why kdevelop use single quotes instead of double quotes in shell
My concrete problem: I have a platform and compiler dependent build directory
which looks like this:
../../obj/Debug-`uname -i`-gcc`gcc -dumpversion`
Unfortunately this is single quoted by kdevelop (e.g. for mkdir and cd) and
therefore not evaluated. This means I have to multiply my build
configurations for each platform/compiler combination, which is a maintenance
What is the reason for using single quotes instead of double quotes? Double
quotes would allow variable expressions and would avoid nothing.
Thanks for putting some light on this issue.
