What does this do exactly?
Documentation was a bit fuzzy for me.
Is it needed at all times to protect with?
Per the docs:
prepends backslashes to the following characters: \x00, \n, \r, \, ', "
So anything that has a null character, a newline (windows/linux/mac),
single and double quotes and \x1a (not sure what that is) is escaped and
ready to be put in a query.
If you don't quote those characters someone could put one of those
characters in a query and cause problems - starting off with an invalid
query but possibly ending up worse.
