My main question: How would debugging tools like d-feet know that a
particular object path was encoded using this algorithm? Maybe you
could insert some string like "/dbusescaped/"; dunno.
BTW there are several functions like this in glib too I'm sure; I
spotted gdesktopappinfo.c:object_path_from_appid() in a quick search.
So I agree that it would make sense to have a "standard" blessed
escaping in libdbus, and we could replicate that to glib and libnih. If
there were a non-ugly way to have it be actually useful to d-feet, that
could argue for having it in the spec as a recommended thing for dbus
tools to try to reverse.
