[developers] '@' in orthography, tsdb profiles

I'm working on upgrading a script which takes a plain text formatted
testsuite and emits [incr tsdb()] item files.
One of the testsuites used an ascii transliteration for Old English.
Specifically, schwa was represented as '@'.
I tried escaping the schwa with a backslash where it appeared in the
orthography line. Upon attempting to create an instance using this
file, I got 'error processing tsdb(1) podium event'.
If I refresh all tsdb, I find the profile created but upon trying to
browse items, I get 'no data in path/to/testsuite/ matching TSDB Query'.
If I replace the "\@"s with "E", all loads without a problem.
What's the right thing to do with '@'s inside a TSDB field?
