I don't doubt that.  However, it doesn't work in the CC Mode test suite,
whereas send-string-to-terminal does.  Or, rather, did.

I suspect Barry Warsaw, the original author of 000tests.el, tried princ
at first, couldn't get it working, and then put send-string-to-terminal
in in its place.  Or, possibly, wrote send-string-to-terminal for that
purpose.  It was a long time ago.

Thanks for the suggestion anyhow.
