Yes you are correct Mark, this escaping is done by MysqlMemberships.py
def escape(self, value):
# transforms accents into html entities (é)
# TODO: find out which language is current (here: uses iso-8859-1)
value = Utils.uncanonstr(value)
# addslashes before " and '
the difficulty is that MySQLdb.escape_string crashes if given non-ascii text.
So I'm modifying MysqlMemberships.py (rev. 94) so that we canonstr()
back in getMemberName().
However it's a not ideal; I don't like that idea very much as it means
that inside the db it is stored as è. Should probably be utf-8.
