I've done this in commit cc81973.  I've tried to avoid either raw 
backslashes or at signs appearing the index file, so the only difference 
is that the escape character is changed.  Backslashes are used if the
user gives '@set txiindexescapeisbackslash'.  User-defined macros involving 
backslashes, at signs or braces in indices are likely not to work.
