    255255* Go full Unicode.  If Chibi can do it, so can we.  R7RS is factored to push the big Unicode tables into (scheme char).  However, IMO the NUL character is completely worthless as a character: it has no semantics worth mentioning.  We can forbid it in strings, as R7RS-small allows.  --John Cowan

     257* The approach used by [[http://caml.inria.fr/pub/ml-archives/caml-list/2002/08/e109df224ff0150b302033e2002dbf87.en.html|OCaml]] is quite smart and provides the best of both worlds (NUL terminated strings with a length tag used everywhere else but the FFI) at a negligible (IMO) cost. -- LemonBoy
