non-standard escapes in string literals

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.
