Not really.  ISO 2022 based encodings use \033 sequence for
switching character sets which you should not munge if you want
to keep them human readable.

I am inclined to say that darcs should not be reinventing $PAGER
anyway.  The simplest would be to just pipe the patch in the raw
form to $PAGER and have $PAGER worry about it.  Or at least make
such an option (keeping the current \xx quoting, with your
recent "\r\n" fix, as the default).  How does that sound?
