Wrong assumption about unidiff syntax in libsvn_diff?

I'm digging through libsvn_diff and found this snippet in diff_memory.c:

               /* The string below is intentionally not marked for translation:
                  it's vital to correct operation of the diff(1)/patch(1)
                  program pair. */
               APR_EOL_STR "\\ No newline at end of file" APR_EOL_STR,
               btn->header_encoding, btn->pool));

I was under the impression that we already cleared up this
misconception? Only the leading backslash and space are important for
signaling the no-trailing-eoln state. The text itself can be localized,
or absent.

I'm pretty sure we should mark the "No newline at end of file" for
translation -- but /not/ the "\\ ".
