OK, now that 0.7.2 is out, this (as well as your other patches) can be
revisited.  I'm now really moving over to the chainsaw branch, so I'll
let Ville decide what to do here.

Ville: for what it's worth, I can't really think of a good reason for
escaping #, so if you can't either and some testing shows things to be
OK without the escaping, go ahead and remove it.
