Please clarify what you mean by "shell escape".  I think that there are 
a LOT of programs that can shell out and run arbitrary commands while in 
the program.

Sudo also uses this phrasing for references to things like this.

Then there are abuses of shell escapes used as vulnerability / vectors 
to attack things.
