Fix for Google Maps when using newlines and other special characters

Bug Description

The Google Maps plugin does not properly encode the URI parameters which prevents it to allow addresses with e.g. newlines in it. This makes the plugin useless for most copy'n'paste work.

Attached is a patch to fix this by using UrlEncode.

After a quick look it seems that several plugins have the same bug. Is there a special reason why only Replace (" ", "+") was used instead of UrlEncode()?

If not and if nobody minds I will inspect all plugins and fix this if necessary.

Philipp, I'm sure UrlEncode was not used simply because plugin authors
didn't know about it. I would love a patch to fix this if you would be so

It wasn't that bad as I first thought, most plugins already use UrlEncode properly :) See the attached fixurlencode.bundle, it fixes the URL encoding for the plugins Google Maps, Google Calculator and Launchpad. You should be able to merge that into trunk. And ignore the first patch I attached yesterday, this new bundle includes all you need.

I hope I did not miss a plugin.
