in reply to RFC: Entity names for square brackets.
The Engine introduces us to some additional metachars, the square brackets. I think that this is too specific a patch. What I'd *really* like to see is something tilly mentioned once. I'd like PM to support a backslash escape. This would allow me to backslash those pesky square brackets and also backwhack angle brackets, while creating a potential extendable metachar system if the Monastery ever needs one, all in manner consistent with the way we all think of escapes in Perl.
That aside, my vote is for &lsqb and &rsqb :-). Also, if the patch is in, one way or another, then maybe this should be a poll?
