Could it be possible to expand escaped characters like \n
to '\', 'n' only in the --braindead mode ?

No, we've been down that path before and we won't do it again. It makes it too difficult to write code that will just work if the meaning of the language can change based on some option. What happens when you pass your code that requires "\n" to mean LF to someone who uses Octave with --braindead?
