With another escaping character users would make similar errors. Tools
such as shell scripts just need to be escaping aware, there is no
exception for general purpose tools!

There is the 'tla escape' command to make using escaping easier, just
use it (if you really wish i can add a -n num option to do num rounds of
escaping/unescaping for nested shellcode).
