Bug Description

I tried to build jockey in Lucid but I got the following error:

  File "/usr/bin/pykdeuic4", line 42, in __str__
    return "kdecore.i18n(\"%s\")" % (self.escape(self.string),)
AttributeError: 'kde_i18n_string' object has no attribute 'escape'

The full log is here:

It looks like escape() is no longer a method of the qtproxies.i18n_string class and should be called as a separate function i.e. qtproxies.escape() instead.
