You don't necessarily need to remove embedded multiple quotes.
The function you use to access the string value can skip over the
multiple quotes. The original token string can be read-only.
Anyway, I remember a discussion on the Antlr list where you or
one of your co-workers discussed this very problem with a function
to eliminate the duplicate quotes.
