Done.  The changes I made in the Gnus CVS will be merged into
Emacs soon.

Gnus does so now in both article and summary buffers.  Please
note that `\"' and `\\' in a quoted string are unchanged since
`"' and `\' are not qtext (cf. RFC2822 section 3.2.5).

Well, I made changes in Gnus' encoder so that it might convert
"foo/bar" into "foo\/bar".  Is it correct?
