I don't see how to do it cleanly without some form of escaping (to allow
anything to be quoted), which goes against the "verbatim" idea.

A suggestion could be to allow any text inside the markers, except for
the marker itself which would need to be escaped. Escaping could take
the form of doubling the marker:

~"foo bar"~ --> "foo bar"
~"foo ~~ bar"~ --> "foo ~ bar"

As I've not thought this through, I'm pretty sure someone will find a
huge flaw in this suggestion.
