Yeah, that seems really suboptimal, but I'm not sure what the fix should
be.  Converting everything to hex seems rather odd, since that would
make látin and unicode characters also be hexified, which is weird.

I think the right fix is to remove this question altogether from
emacsbug.el, and inhibit the "remove non-printable characters" query
from message.el.

Any objections?
