I have a patch against (*) 2.6 tokanize.py that ignores '\' characters in 
raw strings.  This has two effects.  A matching quote, """, ''', ", ', of 
the type that started the string closes the string even if it is preceded 
by a back slash, and a back slash can end a raw string.  No changes to 
regular string behavior was made.

I'll try to make a patch against the python 3000 branch and uploaded so it 
can be used for testing.  (Unless of course someone else has already did it.)


* I didn't have the python 3000 branch on my computer at the time.
