Do we want to more specifically say something like "Ensures that "
[ ...every character with special meaning is prefixed with "\" ... ],
i.e. if a character is already quoted, we don't want another quote
character to be added (otherwise the quoted character would become
unquoted, a literal quote character would be added, etc).
No! :quotewildcard/:quoteregex must escape any backslash characters
that are already present so that the resulting pattern or regexp
will match them literally.
Right. Check. A slip of the brain.
