Let backslashes escape characters

This will enable escaping (quoting) by using an backslash.

Apart from this, it will enable escaping the percent sign by using %%. It also fixes a bug, when % was not followed by a digit or a curly brace.

The functionality for %% should probably not be added.

Documentation for the quotation feature is missing, too.
Comment 2 Remy Maucherat 2016-02-10 14:55:56 UTC
Normally % should be escaped with \% according to the documentation, not anything else.

This looks fixed by r1729730
Comment 4 Felix Schumacher 2016-02-11 16:34:40 UTC
Fixed in 9.0.0.M4 and 8.0.33.
