I haven't asked this one in a while ...

Is there a mode to edit binaries and insert and delete bytes.  I know
about hexl-mode, but AFAIK it only supports overwrite.

"M-x find-file-literally RET FILE-NAME RET" and edit as you like.

That works, but the binary doesn't display the hex values.  Just lots of
\nnn values.  So it's impractical to find the byte location.
