Sebb commented on LANG-830:
---------------------------

The Pattern.quote() method can be used for this.

> The escapeRegex method relies on knowing exactly what all the meta-characters are when
excaping text. This is potentially fragile.
> It would be a lot simpler to use the \Q \E quoting mechanism.
> There would need to be special handling for unquote==true.
