There are problems with converting annotations containing f-strings into strings (from __future__ import annotations). For example f'''{"'"}''' is converted to f'{"\'"}', but the latter is a syntax error.

>>> from __future__ import annotations
>>> x: f'''{"'"}'''
>>> print(__annotations__['x'])
>>> x: f'{"\'"}'
  File "<stdin>", line 1
SyntaxError: f-string expression part cannot include a backslash

More complex examples:

f"""{"'" '"'}"""
f"""{"'''"}""" f'''{'"""'}'''
