But I am sure there are people that need it.

The logic in Embperl is simple, just everything that comes out of Perl
should be escaped and escmode changes this behaviour. I don't think it's a
good idea to change this.

I prefer the other way round. Set $escmode to 7, so you are sure everything
is escaped. In case where you don't need the escaping turn it off (but make
sure that you at least escape everything that comes from the user). You can
localy change escmode with

[+ do { local $escmode = 0 ; $foo } +]
