There is sometimes a balance to be struck between human-readability and
machine-readability, but here the appropriate call is clear: one should
never ever choose punctuation in a human-readable output format based on
what characters are special in a regexp.

This is going to come across as unfriendly, but: please cut down on the
"musing out loud" on the dev list. It's a very high-traffic list even
without your contributions, which have been extremely prolific. When
the development community is this active, we all need to exercise
restraint and restrict ourselves to carefully thought-out commentary.
