Except that escaping is not going anywhere.  You can use various tricks
to try and avoid it, but the *main* issue with escaping is not to double
those backslashes, it's just to be aware of the need for it and know
when and how to handle it (witness the number of commits where we just
add a missing call to `shell-quote-argument`).

Introducing raw string literals doesn't actually help in this regard, AFAICT.
