what a great idea.
using unicode non-ASCII chars in place of ASCII in the core language syntax
in a situation where the latter are fully sufficient and nothing is
gained by doing so
seems in fact pretty silly.
instead using '_' as separator in integer literals (that is ignoring
underscores in such literals) is a sound proposal also found in other
this is especially useful for binary literals (which Lua sadly still lacks).
