This patch adds an unescape() method to saxutils to
convert an xml-escaped string back to its original form

It also modifies the escape() method so that the core
escaping takes places after any additional escaping
passed in via the dictionary.  This will guarantee that
returned string is properly escaped for xml no matter
what is passed in via the dictionary.

Can you please provide documentation and test cases?

added documentation and test cases

no longer changes the order in which escape() modifies the
string with core and passed-in replacements
