This is to avoid having duplicate nodes.  For example, just for type int,
there would have to be four nodes (normal, const, volatile, and const
volatile) in order to give each one a distinct id.

Try using forward slashes, which is the posix standard and should work for
any platform, including vc7.

#include "q/x.h"

The problem is that the GCC parser backend is a unix program, so it thinks
a \ is an escape sequence.
