I believe Tom Lane removed the double-backslash from the psql output by
modifying PQprint.

I recommend that is reversed, because psql escapes out the table column
delimiters with a single backslash, and now the format will be
ambigious.

	rtest=> create table test(x text);
	ERROR:  test relation already exists
	test=> create table test3(x text);
	CREATE
	test=> insert into test3 values ('\\x');
	INSERT 322185 1
	test=> select * from test3;
	x 
	--
	\x
	(1 row)
	

This used to show as:

	x 
	--
	\\x
	(1 row)

Comments?
