would demonstrate that only one pass is done, too.
I've dropped one 0 (i.e. "${hex:4${hex:30}}"), as 400 is invalid hex anyway.

  "${unicode:40}" -> "@"
  "${ unicode:40}" -> "${ unicode:40}"
  "${UNICODE:40}" -> "@"
if we include the last example, the first in this set is superfluous
IMHO.  I'd like one of the examples to include backslash quoting, we
could extend that example, e.g., "\${UNICODE:40}" -> "@"
3028bis-12, section 2.4.2 says:

A quoted string starts and ends with a single double quote (the <"> character, US-ASCII 34). A backslash ("\", US-ASCII 92) inside of a quoted string is followed by either another backslash or a double quote. These two-character sequences represent a single backslash or double quote within the value, respectively.

Scripts SHOULD NOT escape other characters with a backslash.

So I would rather not demonstrate something which violates the SHOULD NOT.
