We obviously need another quote character. I think we're going to have
to dip into unicode to get it ;)
Just to get it out of the way - as a totally unfeasible and bad idea ...
why not use double quotes for unicode literals, and single quotes for
"this is a unicode literal"
'this is a byte literal'
There - got it out of my system. Although, now something else is
suggesting that backticks could be repurposed for the job ...
`this is a byte literal`
