Thinking about it, I don't like the idea to make rlm_sql export
sql_escape_func. And I'm afraid of linkage issues, too.
A links to B.
A links to C.
That's not rocket science, but will C be able to find a symbol in B
on systems with stupid linker?

I'd like to move sql_escape_func in the server core, in src/main/xlat.c
for example. However, I noticed this function uses a global variable
'allowed_chars', so we'd need to bring it in the server core, too.
