No, escape sequences are not parsed in a single-quoted string in perl
(with the exception of \' and \\).  What is needed is a way to turn off
variable interpolation while not disabling backslash decoding.  There
might be a way to do that more easily than my current solution, but I
can't remember it if there is.
