Oh, I'm the only user who thinks this is wrong behavior for
forward-sexp and delete-pair?

I'm not arguing here that we font lock double quoted strings (though
I'm not convinced either). Without font locking, I can't think of a
concrete case that yields the "pretty annoying behavior". What do you
have in mind?

to my configuration and find that forward-sexp and delete-pair seem to
work without confusion, even in the presence of odd double quotes. It
seems forward-sexp just scans forward from point.
