What if you only mark strictly printable characters? does it work

These can easily be copied. This way I could cite content from the
*Backtrace* buffer and either faking non-printable or substituting it
an ellipsis or such.

Someone should implement an encoding that transliterates all
non-printables according to their visual appearance.  E.g., the null
character should be encoded as ^@ (2 ASCII characters), etc.

... and \123 as \123 (four characters). This would be a nice service. Nevertheless, I think the ability to handle decomposed Unicode characters (the way file names, but not time stamp dates, are recorded in Mac OS X's HFS+ file system) is more valuable and important. One could search for such file names and file name completion would work.
