Escape Utils
Faster string escaping routines for your web apps.

Being as though we're all html escaping everything these days, why not make it faster? At the moment escape_utils supports escaping and unescaping of HTML, and Javascript but I wanna add URL encoding soon. For character encoding in 1.9, we'll return strings in whatever Encoding.default_internal is set to or utf-8 otherwise. It has monkey-patches for Rack::Utils, CGI, ERB::Util and Haml and ActionView so you can drop this in and have your app start escaping fast as balls in no time.
