texi2pod removes backslashes

While HTML FFmpeg documentation output is OK, the manpage has some backslashes issues:

[~/src/ffmpeg]☭ grep "select='" doc/filters.texi
ffmpeg -i video.avi -vf select='gt(scene\,0.4)',scale=160:120,tile -frames:v 1 preview.png
[~/src/ffmpeg]☭ ./doc/ -Idoc doc/ffmpeg.texi doc/ffmpeg.pod
[~/src/ffmpeg]☭ grep "select='" doc/ffmpeg.pod
	ffmpeg -i video.avi -vf select='gt(scene,0.4)',scale=160:120,tile -frames:v 1 preview.png

The backslashes disappeared and thus are not displayed in the manpage.

    doc/ drop unnecessary rule, which was converting "\," to ","
    I cannot find a reason for such a rule, which was resulting in badly
    escaped filtergraph snippets.
    Fix trac ticket #1610.
