Yes, that was a great discussion - thank you for initiating it, and for
your explorations in this area! i might indeed try making use of that
`my-raw-string` function when creating REs .... But, setting aside the
debates around raw strings, i still feel something like Stefan's
suggestion for a built-in `re-escape` function would probably solve most
of the issues i have with ELisp REs.
