Maybe what's needed is a way to mutate the lexer by adding new kinds of
literals; Unicode offers a number of paired brackets and quote-like
characters.  Although that is likely to get into readability issues
especially if you do have a mixture of [Char], ByteString, and Text for
some reason.  (Map vs. [] is probably easy enough but add another one or
two in and the sam problem rears its head quickly.)
