A byte is not a character
While I am -0.5 on bchr for many of the reasons already cited in the thread (and would be -1 if the methods names proposed for the feature were a bit more aesthetic), I don't think this argument is valid. Bytes that could otherwise be arbitrary (aka "magic numbers") are *often* chosen because they correspond to the ASCII repertoire. And strings is still a useful utility for C programmers, even if not so much for others.
In what context is `bchr()` useful?
