It may be worth noting that it really need not be terminated by a space.
An escape is terminated by any character that isn't a hexidecimal digit
or by filling up six hexidecimal digits.  However, to make it easier to
terminate character escapes, a single whitespace character following an
escape is consumed as part of the escape.
