Subject: .gist of a Match should not print null bytes, and maybe other control chars too (say “\0” ~~ /<[\0]>/)

<AlexDaniel> m: say “\0” ~~ /<[\0]>/ <camelia> rakudo-moar fcbd8a: OUTPUT: «「␀」␤» <AlexDaniel> … did it just print a null byte? <gfldex> yes For example, dd is smart enough to print “\0”. I think it's a bad idea to spew out a null byte so easily. But maybe not? What do you think?
