> chr(i) vs. '%c'%i vs. '\x00\x01...\xFF'[i]:

Isn't part of this decision is whether the string type will itself be 
written in Python? If so then the chr(i) functionality will be a method 
of the String class, and even if String class is written in C chr() 
could probably still be a class method. Perhaps minimalPython does need 
a char type so that strings can be written in python and not C?
