the second option seems cleaner.  the porting work can be reduced by
using a simplistic encoding that would map any non-letter-or-number
character to a %<char-code>, a la the standard URL encoding.

Don't trust these UNIX people.  They are all demons.  They kill their

their balls cut off but they manage.                        -- anonymous
