In other contexts, I have been known to quote strings with q() (that is, strings with no variable interpolation). Should interpolation later be required, the opening delimiter is changed from q() to qq(). This is a bit of win, since you don't have to chase down the end of the string to change ' to ", had you been using the ordinary '' delimiters.
Hey, I never thought of that... I'll have to keep that in mind, that could save some annoyance
