I posted this some time ago to pgsql-bugs[1], to no response.  So
I'll venture to try here.

Postgres breaks the standard for string literals by supporting
C-like escape sequences.  This causes pain for people trying to
write portable applications.  Is there any hope for an option to
follow the standard strictly?

Cc's of replies appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew
