'firstof' and 'cycle' do not Autoescaping when used in a template.
My expected behavior for Django is: The results of all template tags should be escaped unless marked safe.
The current behavior is NOT a good approach. Instead of documenting such pitt-falls, django should be safe by default.
When I manually inspect the usage of 'firstof' and 'cycle' in several projects its almost a 100% hit with XSS vulnerable code.
Is there any reason why the current (and documented) behaviour is better than just fixing this ?
