The shell also uses [0x81..0x8a] as 'special characters' (parser.h),
maybe the (U)PEOF could be done the same way (with an escape if the
special value occurs in the input data).
(I've not looked at this today, but IIRC the macros that check for
UPEOF are rarely called with strings that might contain UPEOF.)
