During a review of netcf patches, Eric Blake has pointed out that the
list of characters to escape should probably include the escape
character itself ( \ ). Is this correct?

Yes, that is correct since we want parse_name to be the inverse of pathx_escape_nameĀ  in pathx.c

After some surprising difficulty, I just pushed commit f7c2174e that addresses that.
