Beautiful! See, this is why we need 0x80-0xFF to be valid in identifiers. (Or emoji, but we're trying to keep things simple and adding full UTF-8 handling to Lua isn't simple.)

There are plenty of space characters above 0x7F, including the common em-space. Just making everything above 0x7f a letter would be utterly confusing.

function <invisible space> ()
 print("hello, world")

<invisible space> ()

We could start an "obfuscated Lua" contest...
