Not if he wants a char type in Lisp.  Both XEmacs and SXEmacs have
such a type, and it far more frequently leads to detection of bugs
than it causes incompatibilities with code written for Emacs.  Big win
for us IMO (vs. XEmacs not having a char type; I'm not comparing the
different 'macs *except* from the point of view of having a char type,
and that's not arguable.  S?XEmacs has it, GNU don't.)
