I know my view is a bit "western-centric" (or "latin-centrinc") and
people speaking languages who need thousands of symbols to be written
might think differently (especially Asian languages).

Anyway I'm curious to know how, say, Chinese programmers view the thing.
Would they find coding more "easy" if they could write programs using
ideograms or do they think using transliteration of their words in a
Latin alphabet.

As a Chinese programmer, I hate none standard ascii space character. U+3000
is another space for Asian languages, It's a common typo to use U+3000 in
code when you are using Chinese input method. So I always set my editor to
highlight none-ascii spaces, and use special color to distinguish
tab/space/lf/cr .

Using Chinese words in coding would be more trouble than it's worth, if we
can't find proper English word for variable/function name, we can use
pinyin ( instead .

Thank you for the info. Very interesting!

btw, I don't like using none-ascii characters in filename, too, because
of Windows. I agree it's a nightmare.
