The ~C format directive

At least one person has said they think it should just throw the 
character at the terminal, as with ~A.

Currently, VAX LISP prints it like ~S would, abbreviating any control 
bits down to one letter.  This seems right according to the rationale 
given under the description of ~C.  But then one can't use any variant 
of ~C to just throw the character at the terminal.

Any opinions?
