Have your app do its own encoding/escaping that replaces anything
dangerous.  Something like base-64 encoding or the like would probably
be easy and safe.

Yes, this sounds a little irritating, but as I said, you can't expect
to use arbitrary strings in the pathname. And getting rid of complex
escaping will make your life much easier with mdo_rewrite.
