> Currently GQL does not have a escape character. Adding the escape character 
> will help in special character cases for example where a search term contains 
> both colon(:) and quote(") character.
> for example search string is foo:bar, if term is put in quote "foo:bar" and 
> this whole term is considered as a single search value. 
> But in case user need to search foo"abc:bar then putting this term in quotes 
> won't work. But if GQL will have a escape character, then user can search 
> this term using escape character.
