delimit doesn't feel right to me. I prefer quoted. It's the commonly
used term in Perl, for instance. From

... 5) to enclose (words) within quotation marks.

And given the direction of the streaming, is there really a need for a
separate quoted and unquoted manipulator? I'd like:

  ss << quoted(expected);
  ss >> quoted(actual);
