we don't accidentally add backslashes to them when normalizing quotes
because that's invalid syntax!

The problem this commit fixes is that matches would eat too much
blocking important matches to occur. For example, here's one f-string


I know there's no risk of introducing backslashes here, but the regex
already goes sideways with this. Throwing this example at regex101
I get:

    {a}{b}{c}   # The As and Bs are the two matches, and the upper
    ---- ----   # case letters are the groups with those matches.
    aAaa bbBb

... we've missed the middle expression (so if any backslashes in a
more complex example were introduced there we wouldn't bail out
even though we should -- hence the bug). As it stands the regex
needs somesort of extra character (or the start/end of the body)
around the expressions but that isn't always the case as shown

The fix implemented here is to turn the "eat a surrounding non-curly
bracket character" groups ie. `(?:[^{]|^)` and `(?:[^}]|$)` into
negative lookaheads and lookbehinds. This still guarantees the
already specified rules but without problematically eating extra
characters ^^
