It is a fact that *outside a character range expression* an autonymous
("self-naming", not "autonomous") use of a metacharacter character must be
escaped.  But escaping '+' is also covered in 3659, at least for date/time
datatypes, so I propose that be used to track plus signs needing escaping.  The
rest of this bug is covered by the proposed fix, which was being condidered
today.
