One consequence of this change is that now any string that has a backslash needs to be escaped or raw, leading to changes like this on ( where the diagram in the docstring is the culprit. An escaped backslash is not viable in this case, so a raw string is required.

This particular example strikes me as counter-intuitive, though maybe I just need to adjust my intuition.

Was the intention for a docstring like above to use raw strings?
