2.5 escapes widget names

Description

My FireStast widgets used to have an image tag with a small FireStats icon to make them easily identified.
now that 2.5 started to escape the widget names, this no longer works.

Since the code that adds widgets to WP is already privileged code that can do whatever it wants, I don't think that escaping the names is adding any kind of protection.
