That does not address my question.  Single quotes have the same
behaviour in SQL as doubles.  The question I posed stuck to the
simple case of double quotes.  Here are some more examples of the
full SQL string syntax.

   'foo' => foo
    'using ''quotes''' => using 'quotes'
    '''' => '
    '' => [empty string]
    'mixed "quotes"' => mixed "quotes"
    "mixed 'quotes'" => mixed 'quotes'
