Okay, I've tried it and I'll chalk it up to my inexperience with regular
expressions and sed, but I don't have anyhting to show. The general
strategy , though, is to make several passes; first escape all inner
strings, then convert all outer string delimiters (now the only ones not
escaped) to the immutable symbol. I feel like I'll wake up at 2 a.m.
with the answer, but I'll post now anyway.
(Assuming you /can/ say "every instance of A between B's" in regex...you
could always do it with a python script)

Fair enough. Maybe I will submit a PEP for this, I've never looked into
