That's true, but a it's a different point entirely
You see, this is not a problem with backslashes only:
If you have any kind of control caracter or high bit character in your 
filename, you may be in for trouble, because interpolating that string 
verbatim into the repr can cause uforeseen problems when it is printed 

(and forward slashes are't the same as backslashes on windows.  UNC 
paths (\\my-pc\my-share\...) need backslashes.)
