Re-applied this patch, now that 6.3.* is closed.

> Have managed to delete char2,4,8 and 16.  The char16 was tricky
> since it was still one of the builtins.  Removed fine everywhere
> but the bootstrap code.  Had to leave a dummy entry in the Procid
> array so all of the types after char16 would be indexed correctly.
> Could remove this dummy by moving types 21-30 down one, but that

> and badder hacks elsewhere in the code dying to be discovered. :)
> Three points now...regression tests, docs and interfaces.
> 1. Regression tests make very extensive use of char16.  Seems to
> me that these should be changed to a name.  Same for tutorial and
> any other example references in the code.  Seem ok?
> 2. I'll take my best shot at the docs.
> 3. Also take a look/see at the interfaces that reference the char16.
> Perhaps would be better for me to contact the maintainers of those
> interfaces as they would know what to do better than I.
> Once I do one and two, I'll submit the patch.
