    Description

      In the Java <hint> <message>, every `{` beeds to be escaped as `\ {`. That doesn't seem like a good UX to me. The hints often contain a code examples.

      I think that we should revisit how the Rewrite construct

      {...}

      is matched.

      How about not matching any { not followed by * or alnum? Or followed by a whitespace?

      We could do it simply by escaping such cases automatically before sending the string to evaluation.
