I'm curiuos what you're talking about.  The manual says nothing about this
in the PCRE section:
   Example 1. Examples of valid patterns
      * <\/\w+>/
      * |(\d{3})-\d+|Sm

The Pattern Syntax page has a backslashes section which states: In
particular, if you want to match a backslash, you write "\\".

Then, all of my patterns work just fine w/o escaping the backslashes.

So, uh, what are you talking about? :)
