Reasonator - please don't escape slash in URLs for External IDs

Hi Magnus, would it be possible to patch Reasonator to *not* escape slash characters ('/') in External IDs ?

For example, https://tools.wmflabs.org/reasonator/?q=Q1520331&lang=en

the links for Freebase and KEPN are broken because the '/' in the identifier is being replaced with %2F

ie https://g.co/kg%2Fm%2F0dpdj3 (no good) instead of https://g.co/kg/m/0dpdj3

The Victoria County History IDs and Open Domesday IDs are two more that are affected by this.

It's a bit sad to go to Reasonator for a place, eg Shapwick, and find so many of the external links are broken -- so I do hope this is something you can manage to find time to look at, in amongst everything else on your plate.
