The actual behavior of the function is to return t if the argument is
a multibyte string, nil for any other type.  The clear name for that
is multibyte-string-p.

string-multibyte-p implies a function that accepts only strings as arguments
and returns t if the argument is multibyte.

ISTR that I thought about this when I defined that function, to choose
which of those two names to give it.
