On looking at this further, I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea for
a failed backslash command to cause the rest of the input line to be
discarded. In the existing coding, if we find another backslash we'll
try to execute another backslash command, but that seems rather
considerably likely to be the Wrong Thing instead of the Right Thing.
