I'm adding this so there is a record in the bug tracker for posterity. No action is needed except to close it as a "Won't Fix".

As per this discussion here:

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2013-June/021318.html

using \e as an escape code for ASCII ESC character might be nice to have, but it fails backwards compatibility and therefore must be ruled out.

(But perhaps could be re-visited in Python 4000?)
