Have a suggestion?  It's only one character longer than  
wp_specialchars and we're saving a few characters because this  
doesn't require a second param to be passed.  It'll probably be used  
more consistently if its purpose is obvious and its name easy to  
remember.  I also modeled it after js_escape() which is a sibling  
function (special purpose escaper).
