(What we really want here is a "backreference to another match".)  If 
`store-match-data' is sufficiently tolerant of the deception, there is the 
possibility of a fairly complicated dance of `match-data', `replace-match', 
`regexp-quote', and `store-match-data' to quote exactly the submatches in the 
replacement.  (Is there a function to compute, rather than apply, a 
replacement?  That would cut down on the circuitousness...)
