But then all users of Sysquake, Matlab, Octave, etc. (whose I am) should complain because {{{~=}}}
has a meaning in these programming languages. It's easy to put paths and expressions, which are
always more likely to have unexpected Creole markup than plain text, between triple-braces.
An escape character should be reliable and not based on ad hoc heuristics or a moving target.
The only alternatives I see is to use another escape character, such as the percent character,
or {{{~~X}}} to escape character {{{X}}}. Both have problems: percent is more common in text
and likely to occur before punctuation, and double-tilde is verbose and makes escaping tildes
