CSVPrinter#escapeAndQuote(String) doesn't adhere to CSV standard

                 Key: SANDBOX-161
             Project: Commons Sandbox
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CSV
    Affects Versions: Nightly Builds
            Reporter: Daniel Gredler

All the descriptions of the CSV format that I've seen state that:

- Double quotes (") are escaped using two double quotes (""), rather than a backslash (\").
- Embedded line breaks are allowed and don't need to be escaped... just enclose the field
in double quotes.
- Because backslashes are not used to escape double quotes or line breaks, the backslashes
themselves do not need to be escaped.

CSVPrinter#escapeAndQuote(String) breaks these rules. Why?
