nothing specific. i just wanted to make sure that i don't break anything :)

let's say i PUT or PROPPATCH a webdav resource "brian's calendar". this

it seems easy enough to unescape the name when pulling the node out of 
the repository (during a PROPFIND or GET).

but what if about when i'm querying? in a really dumb case, what if a 
user wants to find all of the calendars in my server with "'" in their 
name? is it problematic to url escape that parameter when constructing 
the jcr query? would the operation be more involved than that?

are there any other jcr operations i'd need to worry about escaping and
