Currently the representation of control codes with their high bit set
(U+0080 to U+009f) is like this:


I propose to change this to:


so that it is easier to match them with the low control codes:


(In the last line ^I and ^J are fakes to get the codes to line up nicely;
on the terminal they are replaced by a tab and a newline.)

Sure, this will hardly ever matter, but... I've been looking at binary
files lately and then seeing things like ^Ò^Ó^Ô doesn't make any sense.
Seeing ^r^s^t, one has at least an idea of what code points they are.
