Thanks, that's quite helpful.
At the end you state:

    I personally think raw strings have their use outside of regexes and
    would be a nice addition to the Emacs Lisp language.

I'm willing to believe it, but so far the only concrete examples I've
seen where raw string literals could be helpful are regexps.

I'm clearly leaning against the addition of raw string literal (just
like I'm leaning against the addition of multiline comments, BTW)
because I feel the benefits are quite limited.
