Hi devs,

Yesterday, I hit again a bug about double quotes in a use case. (See 
http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver/ticket/3481 ) I think it would be nice to add 
a new feature in MS 6.0: the ability to escape a quote/double quote inside a 
string. First, we should determine what would be the escape char (probably 
something like \" or "") and secondly the proper way to do it. Perhaps Steve 
would have a few hints to say, since he played a lot in the lexer code. 

Any thoughts?
