I think the change in Emacs 23 is OK, but it needs to be consistent in
characters and strings.

Agreed.  Using \uNNNN is an unambiguous way of saying you want a Unicode
character whose codepoint is NNNN in hex.

I think they should insert a raw byte with that code, and I think they
should do that both in characters and in strings, so that the
inconsistent behavior reported by Richard will become consistent.
