Escaping for paths

Several applications are writing methods to escape strings so that they
can be used in object paths (specifically Network Manager does this, and
eds-dbus has taken code from NM too). EDS is using it so that it can
return an object path of the
form /org/gnome/evolution/addressbook/[uri], where obviously the URI
needs to be escaped.
I think it would be useful for DBus to contain a function that escaped
an arbitrary string so that it could be used in an object path to avoid
this needless wheel re-inventing. Anyone else agree?
