How can I convert a string containing an escaped unicode character to a character?
(string-to-char "\\u03C0") evaluates to
92 which is the character value of the first
\ in the string. I somehow need to modify the string so I can call
(string-to-char "\u03C0") and get
(substring "\\u03C0" 1) evaluates to
"u03c0" which isn't quite right either!
