agree that omitting to mention that '\' has to be escaped is a mistake, but
hardly one, which is incorrectable. IIRC, SGFC treats '\' as a general escape
char, thus in e.g. 'XX[\\]B[aa]' the property value of XX is "\\" (not
I think that just about every program handles it in the same way. Anyway, this
was clearly the intention of the spec. I will clarify that '\' itself has to
be escpaed as well.
p.s. apart from that, having a private property that contains something like
[...\\] looks like a pathologic case to me.
