Basically, it's really rare among popular programming languages to get 
away with not having some kind of escape mechanism or else something 
nearly equivalent to an escape mechanism which isn't taking much more room 
than a plain string.

In Pd, your only way to handle this without editing .pd files in a text 
editor, is to use multiple objects just for constructing the string... and 
before Pd 0.40 it also required externals.
