- -1 without *careful* analysis of how the patch is going to break
existing applications which rely on the fact that IDs are only ASCII
(and therefore don't need to be quoted).  At a minimum, this kind of
change is going to require documenting the risks, and getting soem
feedback, before any merge to a production release.

Please check the patch in on a "private" branch and ask for comments here.
