No straightforward conversion will work, I'm afraid.

The logic can follow along the lines of the new parts in substitute-command-keys.

It has been established already that we need an escaping syntax, too.

Sorry, I'm not following.  This would be a new escape syntax for Elisp
strings? How would it work?

In short, via re-search-foward, followed by compose-region.

For example, would \` and \' have
different meaning in strings than they do in character literals?

No. That would be nice, but more or less impossible to implement.

I think we could use "\\", though. Or else, something like "\\=", although that exact sequence is already taken (substitute-command-keys would eat it).

exactly would these escapes be transformed to user-preferred quote

During buffer fontification.
