Correct. Today we have a number of format related functions:

I think I got them all

There are also:

In addition, there is much more code inside the app that is adding or 
These have been added over time to address common needs but a major task to 
replace and consolidate the core GL 1.3 codebase.

Still, it would be good to create a new OO based class and start to use it 
and slowing migrate scripts.
The 1.3.x platform and plugins could be used to test such a new common 

I'd like to get more input but would be willing to take the lead on 
developing this.

Here I assume you mean the stuff the kses filter does along with
stripping of unwanted HTML, right?

Quote handling in GL2 should be transparent to the developer.   Recall
that all custom SQL goes into a named query file and that the SQL that
goes in there should use prepared SQL as opposed to the kind of SQL
found in 1.3.x.  Similarly, Propel handles the retrieval of the data
into objects so that should be transparent as well.

What else is done here beside path delimiters?

Sounds good.  Anyone want to take a stab at defining the function
prototypes of the oo-based class?  I'm not sure of all the things we are
talking about here.
