Basically: if we wanted to have characters as a distinct type, then we'd
make room for it in Lisp_Object.

In any case, I don't think anyone is suggesting to make such a change
(and if someone proposes it, I'd object strongly.  Not because I think
having as a distinct type would be bad, but because it wouldn't be
better, so it would be gratuitous pain).
