That's a good choice, if you
(a) are using pdfTeX
(b) the string is a plain (ascii) text string without TeX markup.
* Remarks for (a)
LuaTeX is supported via package `pdftexcmds' and \pdf at escapestring.
And package `pdfescape' adds support for other TeX engines.
However, the feature isn't expandable again.
% and using \mystring instead of "...".
* Remarks for (b)
The description isn't the best candidate for \pdfescapestring,
because it's user input that might contain TeX markup,
also active characters can contain TeX markup (see package
inputenc). In this case I consider \pdfstringdef the best
choice, especially if hyperref is already loaded.
