I must admit, I'm confused about how all this escaping stuff is supposed to
work -- I _thought_ that the escaped forms were supposed to be an
internal-only thing, restricted to being used in various tla files and
rel-tables etc.

Is this not the case?  I remember that the original escaping patch was pretty
screwed up in this area, but I assumed that had been fixed.

Are you saying that one must use --unescaped or else output will be escaped?
[In other words tla uses _different_ conventions for input and output?]
