I was using SISC's binary I/O procedures assuming that would make
read-char etc. behave on octet values (Latin-1).  This was necessary
to pass the integer tests, which failed before.  Is this the wrong approach?
I don't see how the integer tests could have passed if read-char was
assuming any other encoding.
