Sounds okay, but can you tell why you implemented
lread--unescaped-character-literals in C? If that's because you need
to call it from load_warn_unescaped_character_literals, then C
functions can call Lisp functions with no problems, we have several
examples of that in the sources. AFAICT, the C implementation is just
a "transliteration" of straightforward Lisp code, so it reads strange.
The function uses an uninterned variable, so it has to be in C. I think that's slightly better than interning the variable and having some Lisp function access it (the latter would have one additional internal symbol).
