You might be interested in trying out my "UTF-8 identifiers patch",
which I posted about in the list:

It's not quite satisfactory (it probably should normalize, and allow
ZWNJ and ZWJ in certain positions; see,
but it's an improvement over simply allowing all non-ASCII bytes in
identifiers, and it didn't greatly inflate the binary.
