Unless you can tell the VCS package to treat the problem characters as valid text, converting tabs to spaces is the only real solution at present. The 0x0C’s are form-feed characters; don’t see why they’d cause a problem, as they’re “printable,” in one sense, but you never know what another software package will do. If you’re seeing 0x7F characters, then you’re editing Multi-Edit database files (extension .db and .hdr, and a couple of others); since those are explicitly not text files, you can’t realistically expect those characters to disappear.
