You can't, and there isn't a sensible way around it - \ in parameters 
particularly is very important for the parsing to make sense... so where 
you're hardcoding the name you have to use '\\'.  I could theoretically 
allow it in the first filename but it'd just be inconsistent behaviour 
so it's really not worth it.  I now warns and attempts to keep going, at 
least.. so it'll work but just be noisy about it.
