'\' *is* an ASCII character. 0x5C in ASCII to be exact. It is
also 0x5C in UTF-8, so no (other) conversion is required.
UTF-8 is designed so that all ASCII characters (0x00..0x7F) have
exactly the same values in UTF-8. This is precisely so that
existing protocols and library functions will continue to work correctly
with it for all ASCII character values.
