In the emacs manual at the several places where it talks about the
undo keys C-_ and C-/, please also mention what hex codes you are
talking about (0x1F) etc. Maybe you are just talking about the same
0x1F and 0x1F, or maybe two different codes. The user wants to know.

I've yet to meet a user who thinks about keybindings in terms of "hex codes", whatever that means.

If you're talking about the ASCII control codes that happen to be produced by some control key sequences on text terminals, then I think it would just confuse users, the majority of whom these days are using graphical terminals that deal with key events, not ASCII character sequences.
