The current proposal doesn't include any way to escape a string for

This may be outside the SRFI's scope since one can always just use SREs
instead, but I figure it's worth calling attention to at least once.

Note PCRE syntax is intended for a separate SRFI.  The
API here doesn't allow PCRE strings at all, so such an
escape procedure would have no purpose.
