This reminds me: Should we add an escape character to the query parser?
This would permit any query syntax character to be included literally in a
query token (provided the analyzer could also handle that character).
Percent and backslash are popular escapes.

For example, if backslash were the escape, then the query:
  file:c\:\\autoexec.bat
would match the term "c:\autoexec.bat" in the "file" field.

Thoughts?
