but the escape mechanism was always there, I can see it in Pd Extended 0.42
that it escapes \$0, I guess it got "fixed" and expanded to all cases

I see that it doesn't make much sense in a symbol box, where everything is
a symbol.

I once opened an issue because I was hoping I could type an unescaped
"$0-x" symbol inside a symbol box, so it could come out as an expanded
symbol. One could be able to explicitly type the escape character if
wanted. Anyway, just bringing that also to the table.
