Well, the ones I've written do so, but only by forcing the strings to
contain UTF-8, which is incompatible with other uses of strings in
MIT/GNU Scheme, and technically not really strings in the R5RS sense.
I've accepted this as a necessary evil for the short term. But I'd much
rather have consistent support for Unicode throughout.
