Raw strings are just another way of typing them into your source code.
There are different ways of writing string literals, but they produce
the same string object:

"Hello \\ world!\n"
'Hello \\ world!\n'
"""Hello \\ world!
r"""Hello \ world!

All these produce the exact same thing. But u"Hello \\ world!\n" is
quite different, or (in Python 3) b"Hello \\ world!\n".
