Looking at the implementation, they both delegate to
read_filtered_event, but read-char passes 1 for the first three args,
where read-event passes 0.

   If NO_SWITCH_FRAME, switch-frame events are stashed
   until we get a character we like, and then stuffed into

   If ASCII_REQUIRED, check function key events to see
   if the unmodified version of the symbol has a Qascii_character
   property, and use that character, if present.

   If ERROR_NONASCII, signal an error if the input we
   get isn't an ASCII character with modifiers.  If it's false but
   ASCII_REQUIRED is true, just re-read until we get an ASCII

Another possibility is to use read-char-exclusive which only changes
ERROR_NON_ASCII to 0.  The downside is that when there are mouse clicks
it prints the events into the minibuffer, covering the prompt (but
typing "?"  still works to restore the prompt).
