I'm aware that parsing of the regex is meant to be done client-side, all 
I'm trying to do is get PowerDNS to actually serve them as they are in 
the backend.  If you look at the original post 
(48855B45.6020604 at obfusc8.org) and 48916317.3040704 at obfusc8.org it 
should be clear what the problem is, and that it's because pdns *is* 
trying to parse escape sequences that there's a problem.
