Hi Frank,
I have no specific comments on how the escaping it should be done, just 
that it would be great if pj_get_def() can add escaping using whatever 
method is decided, as well as pj_init_plus() interpreting it. That is, it 
should be possible for an application to generate a PROJ string with 
pj_get_def() and pass it to another application unmodified, which then 
processes it using pj_init_plus(), and all the escaping would pass through
