I'm not convinced by delimit. The dictionary definition is to do with
marking a boundary so it applies to the ""-case but not \ and others.

What about escape\unescape or encode\decode. The URL specifications call
this type of operation encoding [1] but I think escaping is a more common
and less ambiguous name.
