There is currently no way to have untranslated strings. I'm thinking about
using the 'L' suffix or something similar, but currently, you have to do

One way is to use a char array, not a string:

    const char petscii_string[] = { 0x97, 0x23, 0x56, 0x00 };

Note that you have to supply the terminating zero.  Another way is to place
just the strings into a separate module that is translated with "-t none".

Both methods should also work with the conio functions.
