ltokenp does not see whitespace. This could be a problem for this application.
If you don't mind putting the text inside quotes, then something like this
works with ltokenp:
Here is the filter:
-- replace ` with os.execute
if t=="<file>" or t=="<eof>" then return end
if t=="<string>" then value=string.format("%q",value) end
if t=="`" then value="os.execute" end

What do you mean?
