The move to Unicode makes things a lot more complicated, unfortunately.
Strings before 1.9.x were 8-bit, so the way they were stored had to 
be changed.  Since their storage is now different, it isn't a good idea
to directly access the storage with macros like SCM_STRING_CHARS.

There are the functions scm_to_locale_string, scm_to_latin1_string,
scm_to_stringn, and  scm_to_utf8_string.  But, unlike SCM_STRING_CHARS,
the results of these functions need to be freed.
