Trying to summarize where we are:

1) Yves did dome tests on servers: 
-> the servers being tested didn't seem to unescape

2) Amos Jeffries reports that recent Squids actually *do* handle them as 

3) I tested various browsers, and they do not unescape: 

So what do we do?

Claiming that etags use quoted-strings when almost nobody does seems to 
be a bad thing. For instance, apparently it has caused the Squid 
developers to make a change that in the best case is harmless, and in 
the worst case will break things.

Best regards, Julian
