    methodTemplateLua := 'lua ^ ''{1}'''.
    methodSourceLua := methodTemplateLua format:
       {lua copyReplaceTokens: '''' "four single quotes" with: '''''' "six
single quotes"}.

Or for more comfortable reading:

    lua copyReplaceTokens: (String with: $') with: (String with: $' with:

Still, I would avoid tinkering with the code and go with the (class)
instance variable approach if possible.
