Title: #134: DNS URI support

pspacek commented:
I was playing with an idea of automatic escaping but it cannot be done with 
current record format: There is no way to distinguish alredy escaped text from 
a text which needs escaping. This totally breaks web UI edit workflow because 
it reads text from LDAP, fills text field with it and then double-escapes it 
during save.

For this reason I've given up attempts to automatically escape things, which is 
no different from e.g. TXT records. Call it consistency if you want ;-)
