This might wind up rather confusing: you can't find back your objects. If
they are created automatically you may create them such that they do not
create invalid ids. In such a case the id-quote method might be a good idea.
If you create them by hand (have them create by hand) then you'd better
throw in an exception (or error page) instead of mutilating the id. If only
for educational purposes ;-)
