The idea is to avoid unicode error (by replacing not printable characters by 
their code in hexadecimal) when the display hook tries to display a message 
which is not printable in the terminal charset.

It's just to make Python3 interpreter a little bit more "user friendly" on 

Problem: use different (encoding) rule for the display hook and for print() 
may disturb new users (Why does ">>> chr(...)" work whereas ">>> 
print(chr(...))" fails?).
