Null character /sort of/ works: it makes org-mode insert the code
delimiters on export, but the presence of null characters breaks
export down the road, at least in my case. This time, I could
intercept the exported text and remove the null characters by hand,
but it might not always be the case.
What org really needs is a stronger verbatim quoting construct. In a
lot of cases, you just want your text to be displayed verbatim, with
no interpretation, period. Near as I can see, there's nothing in org
that can currently do this -- please correct me if I'm wrong. For
instance, things like =[[foo]]= should _not_ undergo further parsing /
be interpreted as links. Same goes for quotes, or virtually anything.
= signs should be allowed provided they are escaped in the usual
manner (=\==). The current behavior is very unsatisfactory.
