This is functionality that doesn't exist in the current hexdump implementation (you always get the hex version).

I think a better option would be to factor out the sanitisation and expose that as a separate function.

This is already supported by the prefix_type parameter - are you proposing that we eliminate the parameter & combine it with flags?

I'm afraid I don't quite follow here, hex_dump_to_buffer doesn't alter the flags, so the caller already knows it.
