There's not really a reason not to, we won't run out of bug numbers.

Oh, I think I intended eval-expression-print-maximum-character to only
affect the ?\C-d part, e.g., if you set it to 0, you get

    4 (#o4, #x4)

But I see there is no way to get a plain '4' except by (setq
eval-expression-print-maximum-character nil), which is kind of an
accident.
