	The sed man page states:

             (The letter ell.)  Write the pattern space to the standard output
             in a visually unambiguous form.  This form is as follows:

                   backslash          \
                   alert              \a
                   form-feed          \f
                   newline            \n
                   carriage-return    \r
                   tab                \t
                   vertical tab       \v

	'\' is not exactly visually unambiguous in this context :)

	Just to confirm:

	(orwell ~)2% echo '\hello' | sed 'l'

	Read man page.
	'backslash          \' should read
	'backslash          \\'.
