Unicode raw string containing \u

```    	I'm trying to write a unicode raw string literal, and I seem to be
running up against a conflict between the \uXXXX unicode character
escape and the need to have a literal \u (i.e., backslash followed by a
lowercase letter U) in the string.

If I do ur"\universe" I get a UnicodeDecodeError because (I think)
it tries to interpret \universe as a Unicode escape.  But if I do
ur"\\universe" I get a string that contains two backslashes followed by
the word "universe".

How can I specify a unicode raw string literal that contains a
single backslash followed by the word "universe"?
