 More problems: the escaping functions currently ignores the possibility
 that the input is malformed. It might be some work to make all the
 callers handle the errors, but should:
 
 * xml_escape return error if the input contains unescapable chars (all
 ASCII control chars)

I see no reason why we shouldn't have our encoder doing the best job
it can, but since our parser should scream bloody murder when reading
back this broken data (right?), I'd rather minimized the amount of
processing we suffer just to write out a string.

 * xml_unescape return error if it finds a malformed entity -- a '', a lone
 '', or an entity with an unkown name.

See my other comments about this interface. Now I'm positive that it
should die altogether.
