Are there specific annoyances associated with quoting always, apart from the 2 more characters?
Yes. Since the quoted strings aren't parsed by Python, syntax errors in these strings go undetected until somebody does parse them (e.g. your static type analyzer).
This is a real problem. But in theory, your code editor (and python) *could* parse the strings. They generally don't, but I'm not sure asking them to do that is much harder than asking them to deal with new syntax.
