  Can you do that on a bit array?  I have always missed the ability to do
  such useful things on bit arrays.

  You could probably work with the code-value of the character.
  char-code produces an integer that should be amenable to bit-shifting.

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
