When showing a python string like 'hello \n \'bla \'' it will be awesome to highlight the escape sequences like \n and \'. It will make it easier to make sense of python strings.

    Most of the time, string literals should be treated as a simple entity and not subdivided. Maybe there are circumstances in which some would like to examine strings more closely but this will be rare so it would have to be optional.

    I won't be working on this.
