This is not how it works. The only thing that is delayed is
guaranteed to be unwanted, namely, fontifying as string
a big chunk of the buffer that we know wasn't a string
before the user opened a string.

So what my change does is that this unwanted thing
now comes later, if at all.

Again: this is not how it works. I encourage you to try it out
(and/or read the discussion from the beginning).

And you are confusing two things: One is immediate and
correct fontification, which I agree is desirable, but comes
at a large performance cost for languages that permit multi-line
strings.  The other is an improvement on the current situation.
