Actually Yuhei Kuratomi recently alerted me to the problem of  
embedded quotes in Tcl strings, and I have updated the Tcl syntax on  
the svn repository.

Below is the patch (which does change a few things about embedded  
stuff in strings), but it's probably easier to just grab the file  
from svn.
