My view on the whole think currently is, that we put stuff that is related
to strings in Lang. Code that works on texts should go to Text. To me a
text is more than just a string. A text contains works, that make up
sentences, which in turn build paragraphs.

Using this description, I'd argue that escaping belongs into lang and not
into text, because it works on individual characters rather than on texts.

But this would also raise the question if the various edit distance
algorithms works on texts or on strings. So maybe my distinction is not
good at all.

Do we need to better specify the scope of text?

Benedikt
