You could also quote the backslashs from within the shell using 'qbs':

$ function qbs() { if [ $# -gt 0 ] ; then l=$1; else read -r l; fi; 
echo "$l" | sed -e 's/\\/\\\\/g'; }

$ echo | sed -e 's/\..*//'

# This command works. I want to quote the backslahs to copy it in emacs.
# So I copy and paste it into 'qbs'

$ qbs
echo | sed -e 's/\..*//'    # <- This is what I copied/pasted
echo | sed -e 's/\\..*//'   # <- This is what 'qbs' produces

# or pass it as argument to qbs:

$ qbs "echo | sed -e 's/\..*//'"
echo | sed -e 's/\\..*//'
