No, it doesn't.  The backslash was an accident, and anyway after fixing
the reader too #{foo\ bar}# reads the same as #{foo bar}#.  Those
symbols need to be unique lexically, but not globally, so it's not a big
deal.  At some point we will need globally unique gensyms but this
change does not adversely impact the current state of things.
