I included that example because it is egregious, and I was astounded
when I saw it. The real benefit comes from the far more frequent cases
where people find themselves using «\\» or «\\\\». And if or when we
implement a syntax that allows double-quotes in a raw string literal, it
will save people even more time, because there are yet more tens of
thousands of cases of «\"» in the code.
