We had a problem with people who were smart enough to just eval one of the
verbs which did substitutions, and got an escape code back:

eval me.escape = $ansi:substitute("Blah[%red]Zoo")[5]
=> ""
(but this was an escape...)

Or bypassing their :notify(). The 1.8.0 option is far better, there aren't
any codes accesible /in/ the database.
