So allegro stores the strings in utf-8 (as confirmed by looking at a
trivial fasl), and when a non-latin1 (or cp1252) character is interned
from the fasl in a 8-bit variant, it becomes #\?. That makes sense.

You just did.

echo 选项 | recode u8..l1 | recode u8..u2
recode: Invalid input in step `UTF-8..ISO-10646-UCS-2'

Thanks a lot! This closes this investigation of strings in allegro.
Can you test that the latest checkout passes the test on mlisp8?
