I went with the existing patch, but gave a little more thought to
string_escape_mem.  Stuff that bugs me:

	- ESCAPE_NP sounds like it means "escape nonprinting
	  characters", but actually means "do not escape printing
	  characters"
	- the use of the "only" string to limit the list of escaped
	  characters rather than supplement them is confusing and kind
	  of unhelpful.
	- most of the flags are actually totally unused
    
So what I'd like to do is:
    
	- eliminate unused flags
	- use the "only" string to add to, rather than replace, the list
	  of characters to escape
	- separate flags into those that select which characters to
	  escape, and those that choose the format of the escaping ("\ "
	  vs "\x20" vs "\040".)
    
I've got some patches that do all that and I think it works.  I need to
clean them up a bit and fix up the tests.
