Sorry, Gary.  The context is the babel test suite.  It failed on CCL
because it was depending on code-char never returning nil, and also
because it includes uses of #\u with values that are not characters
in CCL.

I was making some performance improvements in babel and wanted
to make sure the test suite still passed, and I ran into this problem.
I had to comment out the #\u's (+# didn't work because they're
using their own #+) and modify the test using code-char to
ignore cases where it returns nil.
