    Original author may have expected a user to
    escape himself like "\string\(\string\134" for "(\".

Indeed, we had this same discussion last year in regards to pdftex,
which also requires the user to do escaping.  The conclusion was, as far
as I could gather, was that it was too late to fix it, since any
existing packages (notably hyperref), already assume that behavior.

So I fear it might actually cause more trouble than it solves to change
dvips in this way :(.
