No: all characters are BASE-CHARs and all strings are BASE-STRINGs;
characters are 8 bits wide. (As I understand it, UTF-8 can be used
to encode characters that're wider than that.)
If any of these things were to change, I'd be most enthusiastic about
changing the last (making CHAR-CODE-LIMIT (expt 2 21) or thereabouts
and making a BASE-STRING be something like a UTF-32 string.)

If we're just talking about going from a sequence of 8-bit bytes to a
string of 8-bit characters, that sounds like a much simpler problem.
Let me R TFM and get back to you (unless someone more familiar with the
issue than I comes up with a solution first.)
