request.static_url quotes paths twice #407

When generating a static URL the path is encoded twice. Here is an example:

>>> import pyramid.testing
>>> config = pyramid.testing.setUp()
>>> config.add_static_view('images', path='mypkg:templates')
>>> request=pyramid.testing.DummyRequest()
>>> request.static_url('mypkg:templates/one%2Ftwo')

notice how %2F has been transformed into %25252F. This results in a broken URL since for incoming requests the URL is only dequoted once (as it should be).

Looking at pyramid code the first quoting happens inside StaticURLInfo.generate:

if path.startswith(spec):
    subpath = urllib.quote(path[len(spec):])
    if url is None:
        kw['subpath'] = subpath
        return request.route_url(route_name, **kw)
        return urljoin(url, subpath)

and the again when StaticURLInfo calls route_url, which uses quote_path_segment again:

 # a stararg argument
if hasattr(v, '__iter__'):
    v = '/'.join([quote_path_segment(x) for x in v]) # native

I suspect that the right fix here is to remove the quoting done in StaticURLInfo and rely on route_url to quote paths correctly.
