This patch gives a Py3k warning when a unicode escape occurs in a raw
unicode string.

This patch changes the raw-unicode-escape code to warn. Marc-Andre, is
this OK?

I guess it isn't...

Why was this patch rejected?
with python2.6,
     len(ur'\u1234') == 1
with python3.0,
     len( r'\u1234') == 6

This is worth a warning IMO.
