Probably more portable approach none

Description Yanko Kaneti 2006-11-24 12:37:30 EST
With the attached patch bash completion for the scp command also escapes single
quote characters "'" by matching the sed hex perlre escape for it "\x27". 

Not sure how portable this sed syntax is but it works for Fedora's sed.

Also sent to the upstream author.

Have you heard back from upstream?
Comment 3 Yanko Kaneti 2006-12-07 14:51:03 EST
Nope. I did resent it today as it might have ended in a spamtrap or something...
If there is no answer I won't try any more.

Here's a less pretty and efficient, but probably more portable approach.
