url_for :escape parameter is ignored

Reported by Jan Berkel | June 3rd, 2010 @ 06:42 PM | in 3.0.6

The rdoc for url_for in actionpack/lib/action_view/helpers/url_helper.rb states:

   url_for(:action => 'checkout', :anchor => 'tax&ship', :escape => false) 
   => /testing/jump/#tax&ship

however anchors always get url escaped, the :escape parameter is completely ignored. Is this intended behaviour? It would be nice to make the escaping optional.

if it is intended behaviour the documentation should be updated.
