Yes, I think they should. They should be documented as well. Another one of
those things that are left to do. The recent TODO file actually mentions

I don't think so. If given a handy interface to the functions, the
application programmer could escape/unescape URLs himself when wanted.

Currently they're only used internally and they're not even have the same set
of arguments (I mean, escape and unescape).

I'd apply patches that bring this immediately!
