+            There's been discussion on whether backslash '\' (U+005c) should be
+            disallowed or not.  In favor of leaving it in is that it's a legal
+            character on some filesystems, and it seems somewhat arbitrary to
+            remove it.  Opposed is that it may cause confusion, and in at least
+            some cases complicates implementation.
