Subject: quotes and backslashes are scaped twice in Locale::Maketext::Extract
This is in I noted that both _to_gettext and _format scape quotes and backslashes. The result is that if I have a translatable string as in: maketext("Testing \"quotes\""); The PO file ends with: msgid "Testing \\\"quotes\\\""
