FWIW, for group identifiers escaping is already in place. The opening
and closing brackets [ resp. ] are escaped as %( and %), respectively.
Interestingly enough the escape character '%' is not escaped and
consequently the group ids test%)test and test]test are not
differentiated. Oops, a bug.
You can easily test all this by creating folders containing those
characters in KMail. (Yes, we are guilty of using user supplied strings
as group identifiers. Sue us.)
