    * #define _CHAR16T here in order to prevent yvals.h from overriding our
    * char16_t typedefs, which we set to wchar_t for C++ code.

    * In addition, #defining _CHAR16T will prevent yvals.h from defining a
    * char32_t type, so we have to undo that damage here and provide our own,
    * which is identical to the yvals.h type.
