This is a very nice idea!
I was actually thinking about the issue with "\t". I already wrote an
escaping function in tr.c, but the priority here was for me to build
the basis for a more flexible implementation.
I'll see if I can work on it this evening. The way cut(1) fortunately
was designed allows me to do that trivially.
And while at it, I'll implement the escaping-function to allow escape
