multi sub chrs( Int *...@grid --> List of Char )
C<chrs> takes zero or more integer grapheme ids and returns the
corresponding characters as a string.
Is a C<List of Char> a "string" now?
If the return value always C<does Str>, the return type should reflect
that, no? (I assume C<List of Char> on its own does not; a dangerous
OTOH, if it is not the case that this "string" necessarily C<does Str>, it
seems an interesting distinction to make – one that could stand to be
expounded upon? :)
