The only interpretation I can make is that the madness is already here
since linefeed and form-feed already may be written as \n and \f if
you set print-escape-newlines to t. All I proposed was that it should
write tab as \t too.

Perhaps there should be a separate variable to print escape sequences for all
the ASCII control characters (see the Basic Char Syntax node of the Emacs Lisp

\a, \b, \t, \n, \v, \f, \r, \e, \d

It would probably be controversial to include \s and \\ , since they aren't
control characters.

I might not have proposed that if I knew it was that utterly
disturbing to someone. ;-)

Perhaps MON KEY objects to backwards-incompatibility.
