In JLS, and hence javac, Unicode escape handling happens early on at a 
low level, before string escape handling. This means that it is 
technically possible to write string escape sequences in terms of 
Unicode escapes.

I'm not suggesting you should do the same here, but you should be aware 
of the difference, compared to javac behavior.
