   or: '... *'' ...' to prevent expansion by Emacs.

I forgot to notice that _after my patch_, one has to do:

'... '\*' ..." to prevent expansion and insert a _literal_ <SPC>*<SPC>.
Anyway, this is not _that_ much more difficult and the situation
occurs extremely rarely.

   If one wants to use a literal <SPC>?'' or such, the above
   happens to do the right thing anyway for single quotes, as it does for
   the opposite problem with double quotes.

Not quite.  One can not use ' to quote ' anyway.  One _has_ to use "".
Thus the problem with ' is non-existent.

Sorry for these mess-ups.  But they do not affect the patch, nor the
proposed solution.
