I'm committing this patch, even though it's not really correct, since AFAIK
nobody is using Twisted with a different database :-).

We should probably be doing escaping using DB-API's interpolation facilities to
make sure that it's right for each database (and if it isn't it becomes a
driver problem, not a Twisted problem).
