I'm writing a little wiki clone. When the user edits and submits an entry,
I'd like to have them send the updated text via a form, but have the entry
they're editing hardcoded into the form they're sent - so they send the
URL "myscript?edit=<entry>" and the text for the entry via the form.

I've also found use for urlEncode (which I've not bothered doing yet as my
project's at a primitive stage so far), so it might be best just to expose
those two from the existing code as ships with GHC?
