Facundo Batista <facundo at taniquetil.com.ar> added the comment:

The "r" prefix changes how the escape sequences are interpreted after
the string literal has been parsed, it doesn't change how the literal
itself is actually parsed.

Fixing this will imply too much low level work, and it's easily solved
in other ways, so it's not foreseeable to change.

If you really want to push this, you should propose the change and how
to do it in python-ideas or python-dev.

Thank you!
