That comment was written by Jim Blandy many years ago (r838152).

It is older than FSFS. So technically, this comment has been
violated ever since FSFS has been made default, because the
design of FSFS clearly didn't take this comment into account.
If it had, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

I think we can safely ignore whatever that comment is saying,
or rather, is failing to say, about control characters.
