I just rewrote the entire function. It had code that looked for a
backslash to escape things, but I couldn't see how it actually did anything.
It's in CVS now.
One thing I'm not clear about is the backslash processing for formatting
the filter options, Rainer. If you wanted a backslash in a parameter
passed to your filter you would need to do:
"backslash \\\\this" -> "backslash \this"
You need two \\ for getword, but then you need two for filter option
process, from my quick look. I guess that's the way it has to be since
[options] are a sprintf-type string. Right?
