If we agree that it's important to support Matlab's double quote syntax
eventually, then we should probably start by discouraging the use of
backslash-escaped sequences in double quoted strings and other likely

We can start to implement the string data type without changing the
meaning of double quoted literals. We can implement the string() and
strings() constructor functions to create string objects without the
need for any change in how double quotes are interpreted.

After the type is supported, then we can look at changing how the
interpreter handles the double quoted literal string.
