Of course not -- they're different strings.  Should they
be considered the same?  What about "\h'0'lemon"?
Or "\h'\w'l'u'e\h'-\w'le'u'l\h'\w'e'u'mon"?
(They all look the same in print.)
Where do you draw the line?

I believe macros should be designed to help the users if they
want help, not to prevent them from shooting themselves in
the foot if they absolutely desire that.
