Ok, here is the whole ugly thing: it certainly won't interfere with
programming since it does all the work in the interactive spec (see
C-x ESC ESC for the show.  BTW, can anybody tell me how the command
history manages to record the last two arguments unevaluated?  I can't
for the life of me figure out how this works), so certainly no
security risk.

You can use all the special symbols that are available in
query-replace-regexp-eval, too, like \& \#1 and so on.

If somebody has a good suggestion how one could get rid of
replace-requote in the command history, it would be nice to hear.
But I really think that \"\\3"' should deliver a _verbatim_ \3, or
we could have written \\3' in the first place.

Docstring missing as to yet.
