Hi Elias,

this is quite feasible technically. What I don't like, though is the incompatibility
that it creates for the source code.

Suppose I write a function Z←AؠB. Who else except myself can decipher
what it is supposed to mean? I strongly believe that restriction names
to almost only ASCII letters (and writing the names in English) is a very
good convention that we should not easily give up.

What are your thoughts of allowing the use of characters outside of Quad-AV?
