Errata: Some terminals that do understand UTF-8 might not be happy
with characters >= 0x7f, so instead of

if (v < ' ')
this should probably be
if (v < ' ' || v > '~')

(I would've expected that if (v < ' ' || v > 0x7f) should work, but it
does not and I don't know pickle enough yet to understand why)
