I've reviewed a little the thread.
I've not evaluated the possible use-cases of "cgi.escape".
The question is always: who start's the use of insults?
I just noticed one thing:
The OP wrote (refering to an implementationd detail, which btw. has
possible resulted after many days of thought/trials in context of
"This seems to me to be dumb"
which could be interpreted as: "the implementor seems to be dumb"
So, personally I think the implementor was free to reply "bla bla bla,
This was not an insult.
Just a gentle gesture (using similar wording as the OP).
