Thanks.  That's part of the problem.  Another part is that syntax
fontification will have wrongly fontified the bits beyond the end of the
invalid string with font-lock-string-face.

I've had another idea - set these syntax-table properties as is done
currently, but only for the duration of font-lock-fontify-region.  That
way, the fontification should come out right, and João will be able to
do the things he wants to do with invalid strings.

I would do this in CC Mode by setting some text property instead of
syntax-table (let's call it c-fl-syn-tab), and just before font locking
happens, copying the value of these properties to the syntax-table
property.  And, of course, the reverse process after the font locking.
Or something like that.
