Thanks for the sed idea.

(I learned something new today, can I go home now?)  ;-)

That will work in most (99%?) cases; however with non-printable
characters, it's still not quite lined up right. Here's an example:

  0000000 \n \v \a 024 \r \n  l  i  n  e     2  :     !  @
          0a 0b 07 14 0d 0a 6c 69 6e 65 20 32 3a 20 21 40

Any further thoughts? I could obviously reverse the sed logic so it adds
an extra space between each of the hex characters, but then I can't fit
as many characters on one line...

If it's appropriate to make such a change, it would still be nice to
have the -tcX suggestion implemented. However, I can easily make do with
the sed filter approach.

Thanks for the suggestion, but
how about just filtering the od output through a little sed filter

  $ printf 'this is line one\nline two\n'|od -tcx1|sed '/^[0-9]/s/ \(
  0000000  t  h  i  s     i  s     l  i  n  e     o  n  e
          74 68 69 73 20 69 73 20 6c 69 6e 65 20 6f 6e 65
  0000020 \n  l  i  n  e     t  w  o \n
          0a 6c 69 6e 65 20 74 77 6f 0a
