Well, the recent quantity of very non-standard log messages has made me pay
much closer attention to log message styles.

In saying that backslashes shouldn't be used, I'm not so much referring to
HACKING as I am to the general principle of consistency. By implicit
consensus, we seem to have agreed that forward-slashed repository paths
should be used in log messages, since that's what the vast majority of log
messages are currently doing. (including all the examples in HACKING.)
