how can I enter an non printable char, e.g. ASCII 0x0D, in mc-edit?

My workaround is 'echo -ne \\013 >> some.file' an then cut'n'paste it.
But I think that's not the best solution. ;-)
For every character except #13 (ASCII: CR) it works by first pressing
C-q and then C-a for #1, C-b for #2, and so on.
The issue with #13 is well-known amongst the developers of mc. I hope we
find the time to fix it.
