it now builds and runs when compiled without UNICODE_INTERNAL; this is a
sign that the new char tables work, the new char-conversion system
basically works, etc.
with UNICODE_INTERNAL i've encountered the dreaded
"iso2022-preservation" problem -- i.e. byte-compiling an iso2022-encoded
lisp file is unlikely to work without further hacking. converting them
to utf-8 is not an option since in many cases the lisp code depends on
having the proper charset encoded in the actual chars in the file, at
least in an old-Mule world. so i'm [a] trying to remove this
assumption, [b] putting in hacks to make byte-compilation
iso2022-preserving, using private unicode chars.
