For the record, this is not the case.  xgettext recognizes character
escapes and canonicalize strings before writing.  So the output
shouldn't contain escaped single quote:

$ cat a.js
gettext('My magic ain\'t working string')

$ xgettext -L JavaScript --no-location --omit-header -o - a.js
msgid "My magic ain't working string"
msgstr ""
