Ah, selective amnesia, how useful you are.  The original point of the
discussion was in fact about using alternative quotes to avoid alternate
backslashes (or at least excessive ones).  The first example showed this
nicely, actually, within the confines of a language which doesn't give
you much more help.

Yes, I know from past conversations that you have a superhuman ability
to recognise the code in apparent line noise.  That still doesn't make
it legible to anyone else.
