i thought atleast mapping the backslash to _something_ more readable
than it is now would make sence..... the way its now kinda sux ;/

i also thought that mapping a character to another one which is
already used may introduce other problems, thats why i suggested the
back-arrow for the backslash as alternative....

it'd work much better in uppercase-petscii actually (you have a
backslash there and also characters that kindof represent the tilde
and curly braces...... no lowercase letters then ofcoz ;D)

i guess we should simply evaluate what kinda problems it could
trigger.... if there are potentially none, there shouldnt be a reason
not to do it :o) (and ofcoz, if it'd just introduce other nasty
problems at another point, please do NOT do it ;=P)

whatever, couldnt you just introduce a #pragma or sth for the compiler
so anyone can handle that crap like he wants themselves?

#pragma charmap 0x20 0x60      /* replace spaces by shift-spaces */

sth like that?
