All right, so:

   * PROBLEM: zsh with 'setopt extendedglob' enabled
     ANSWER: quote it in single quotes ('^')

   * PROBLEM: cmd.exe
     ANSWER: double it

Any others?

I'm assuming we considered other possibilities and decided "^" was still
the best character available. If so, then we just need to document the
above and live with it.
