Description

Hugs allows a special way to write string literals with spliced variables in the middle:

letter name = ``Dear $(name),
Here are some characters: \ ' ` ".
To learn more, send $$10 to the address below.''

This would be quite tricky to support, both since it puts the layout rule temporarily out of it, but perhaps mostly due to the splices. A middle ground could be to simply ignore the splices and lex it all as a special form of string.
