Oh, and thereʼs another version in gnus-util, and one in url, and an
almost compatible one in org [1]. The gnus and url ones suffer from
this same issue, although they both return different wrong results :-)

At least the epg, rfc2368, gnus, and the url versions look like they
can be unified. Not sure where to put them though.

[1]  It supports % representation of the UTF-8 encoding of chars, but
     also of the unicode code point of chars, so eg %E1 gets turned
     into á. Iʼm sure thereʼs some historical reason for that.
