If it's Markdown-style (I'm still not clear on that point) then you
delimit the code with double backticks instead:

   `` This code contains literal `backticks`. ``

If your code uses double backticks, delimit with triples etc.

Even if that isn't possible, does it really matter? How often do you
*need* to embed code samples containing backticks in your plugin
readme files?
