When exporting code listings in any programming language which uses '\'
for escaping characters in strings, and subsequently uses '\\' to mean
"literal backslash", literal export is required. For example, one might
have an Org document with Emacs Lisp source:

 ' * A
 | ** B
 | #+begin_src emacs-lisp
 |   (setq my-regex "\\\\(.+\\\\)")
 | #+end_src
