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.
