Possibly, depends if you're going to want to get data back out for use in 
xml/html again or not...

If someone could suggest a perl library that'll decode html entities into 
ascii characters, then we could add in an option to do that. That way 
people can choose

It already uses prepared statements for everything, so I'm not sure where 
the problem's coming from (it should already be fine on the sql injection 
front, assuming the database actually supports prepared statements and 
parameters properly, which postgres/mysql certainly do)
