But shouldnt't it? It seems to happen in compare_info() (now in
avlstuff.c), which could be extended in the same way to treat escapes
similar to pdftex.ch. Still it's a little tedious to have to do the same
at two different places, in two different languages...

...maybe all cases written in PDF ref. table 3.2.

Should not be too difficult. And maybe we can re-use conversion into
8-bit chars.
