  The upgrades shouldn’t break peoples configurations.  We do a fair amount of testing to be sure this is true.

  Whatever the value of “correct_escapes”, so long as you don’ change it, it’s fine.

  The problem comes with people using the fixed escaping style, and setting “correct_escapes = false”.  I’m not sure how that happens, but it’s wrong.
