Does not apply to nested templates in general:
echo '{{echo|{{echo|a|b}}}}' | node parse --wt2wt
{{echo|{{echo|a|b}}}}

Minimal test case:
echo '{{echo|[{{echo|http://example.com}} Foo]}}' | node parse --wt2wt
{{echo|[{{echo|http://example.com}} Foo]}}

Not a perfect fix (we are not escaping everything in nested transclusions that we should), but at least it lets experienced editors do what they need to do. They are less likely to mess up, hopefully.
