I believe that the difference between "" and <> is that if you use ""
the directory where the file that contains the #include is looked in
before the directories specified with -I and the 'standard' places.

This can make it VERY difficult to build with a local (aka hacked)
copy of an include file.  Also, if there are multiple files with the same
name it may not be obvious which one is actually included.

IMHO Using <> throughout is actually best - unless you actually really,
really want the file from the directory where the including file was found.
