that's marshallade as a normal error and errors are XML escaped. (Have you
tested and found out that it isn't the case? In that case, feel free to
correct me!) A test for this is a hook script that outputs some characters
that need to be entities, such as < and &. Might be good to include that
in the test case for this feature.
