I object to it.

By grepping, I found many files under lisp subdir are using
"?\_" for representing "?_" (e.g. calc/calc-ext.el).  Some
are using ?\X unconditionaly even in the place where ?X

That means there are much more such files not included in
Emacs distribution.  If we change the meaning of ?\_, all of
them stop working.
