Not yet.

This surely qualifies as bug. No escaping should be needed on Unix.create_process and whathever you give as arguments should end up in the sub process' Sys.argv as given. A mantis http://caml.inria.fr/mantis/ issue and a patch (possibly on github) are likely most welcome.  

FWIW I have this link about the problem [1] I intended to study at a certain point. It might be worth giving it a read.
