character literal question

Is there a reason why we have to escape the character ' (apostrophe)
when used in a character literal? For example, we have to write '\''
instead of '''. (With syntax highlighting, the second is a lot better
looking than the first.) It seems that in this case we do not need
the escape because a literal contains exactly one character. If there
is no good reason for having the scape, I think that we should remove
this restriction in Haskell'.
