      Description

      SQL:1992 supports delimited identifiers for schema objects in queries:

      (http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~shadow/sql/sql1992.txt, ยง5.2, p82)

      <delimited identifier> ::= <double quote> <delimited identifier body> <double quote>

      Currently Impala only allows backticks around shema objects, which can
      cause issues for some versions of some tools which produce queries of the form:

      select * from "table";
