Misc #11960: Tiny documentation improvement for URI.escape

This just cropped up on Reddit. A user was confused by URI.escape's behavior, why it was obsolete, and what should be used instead. So, here's a trivial doc patch:

```
diff --git a/lib/uri/common.rb b/lib/uri/common.rb
index 4c7d112..e139499 100644
--- a/lib/uri/common.rb
+++ b/lib/uri/common.rb
@@ -81,6 +81,10 @@ module Escape
     #
     # Escapes the string, replacing all unsafe characters with codes.
     #
+    # This method is obsolete and should not be used. Instead, use
+    # CGI.escape, URI.www_form_encode or URI.www_form_encode_component
+    # depending on your specific use case.
+    #
     # == Usage
     #
     #   require 'uri'
```
