Escaping for glob on Windows should not be such trivial. Special characters in the drive part have no special meaning and should not be escaped. I.e. ``escape('//?/c:/Quo vadis?.txt')`` should return ``'//?/c:/Quo vadis[?].txt'``. Perhaps we should move the escape function to the glob module (because it is glob's peculiarity).

Here is a patch for glob.escape().
