I suggested using "non-break-space" as an an escape character (though
the suggestion probably got buried in the rant).  This isn't an ASCII
character, but is 0xA0 in ISO-8859-1.  If NBS is common enough
throughout character sets, it would be a minimally disruptive
convention, since it would appear simply as a space in displayers which
didn't interpret it.
