Like I said, I agree that something like this would be useful; I
occasionally would like "\\" to have more general behavior, too.
Anyway, it seems worth discussing.

My point is that this would be a new feature, which is technically
*inconsistent* with the currently-documented behavior.  Implementing it
would take some work and would involve breaking backward
compatibility. (At least in theory -- I don't know if anyone out there
relies on "\\" *not* being translated when it does not appear at the end
of a line, but someone might be.)  So it's not something to be taken

Does anyone know why the behavior of "\\" is presently restricted to
appearing at the end of the line in a paragraph?  Does anyone need it to
be exported literally when it appears elsewhere?
