Personally, I think i'd prefer the identifiers to be renamed to
something more sensible than \uXXXX. Would it be possible to use
an escape character and the *name* of the glyph/symbol instead?
I'm also not very happy with backslash for escaping (outside of
strings/char constants), since it's used for lambda (somebody pointed
out this and other problems in a previous mail).
sin :: Float -> Float
sin =AEtheta =3D sqrt (1-(cos =AEtheta)=B2)
Or something like that?
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
