On considering the whole sitation, I'm beginning to think we should
just URI-encode, since it's easy and known to be safe right now
(w.r.t. terminal output, which I forgot to mention before).

If users really have a problem with it, we can later add a config knob
to control the encoding, and make some sort of single-quote delimited
format or whatever. This would be an easy change, and would not break
compatibility, since we'd continue to support URI-encoding as the
default (even if in our example conf files, we choose to show the knob
set in the custom-encoding position).

So, put me down as in favor of the URI-encoding solution for now.

I don't think anyone really objected to it, besides me, so I'll just
commit that.
