OK.  So, for that case \ should not be an escape

Yuck!

What's the "normal" case (i.e. the situation most common to people using
sql-mode) ?

How do you tell SQL*Plus to use \ (or some other char) as an escape ?

Should sql-mode just have a config var and do

   (defvar sql-escape-char nil)

   ...
      (if sql-escape-char
          (modify-syntax-entry sql-escape-char "\\" st))
