Actually, I don't believe our syntax allows backslash to be followed by a
whitespace character. There's little point in preserving the whitespace
character if it's illegal, so I suggest we strip it.

A character class (charClass) is either a charClassExpr or a charClassEsc. Since
charClassEsc embraces things like \P{IsCombiningDiacriticalMarks} I think that
it's only within a Character Class Expression (charClassExpr) that you wanted
whitespace to be preserved.
