I take it back. I won't change the code for ~C. [I will for ~Y].
CL DISPLAY's the character as well. From the CL Hyperspec:
(format nil "~C" #\A) => "A"
(format nil "~C" #\Space) => " "
[CL]> (format nil "~c ~c ~c" #\space #\tab #\newline)
[CL]> (format nil "~s ~s ~s" #\space #\tab #\newline)
"#\\Space #\\Tab #\\Newline"
[CL]> (format nil "~a ~a ~a" #\space #\tab #\newline)
