  ^^^^^^^^^^

AFAICT ECMA-262 does NOT use %uXXXX for encoding full URI's (see 15.1.3's
description of the encodeURI function).  However, Appendix B.2 
does describe %uXXXX as an "extended feature" of the escape/unescape 
functions.

Yes, I'm interested.  I'm just not certain about who to blame 
for that :-).  FWIW, I'm +1 on apreq supporting this, even if 
dev@httpd.apache.org decides against it.
