Are you sure Catalyst is unescaping the argument and not the web 
server itself? We had that problem with apache, so 
double-encoded the arg. But then we switched to lighttpd and 
then double-encoding was a problem. Plus the dev boxes handling 
it differently again we just made sure to avoid having slash in 
the args (we encoded the whole arg to be free of any 'special' characters).

I'm interested in how others have handled this though since the 
encoding we're doing makes for a very long arg.
