But we are both in agreement that there isnt a good way to do this

Agreed. Anything that tries to generalize beyond "\Q$string\E" requires a variety of assumptions.

BTW, is the . really necessary? I dont think it is as the s/// will just skip the char if it doesnt match.

Just trying to be careful :-) In case I neglected something with those classes, and that something also required escaping, then just leaving it in the string wouldn't result in a valid re. (I don't tend to use POSIX char classes either, so I wasn't sure exactly how inclusive I was being).
