I agree with this.
I never seen any man in China using chinese number literals (at least two kinds:一, 壹, same meaning with 1) in Python program, except UI output.
They can do some mappings when want to output these non-ascii numbers. Example: if 1: print "一"
I think it is a little ugly to have code like this: num = float("一.一"), expected result is: num = 1.1
I don't expect that anyone would sensibly write code like that, except for testing. You wouldn't write num = float("1.1") instead of just num = 1.1 either.
But you should be able to write:
text = input("Enter a number using your preferred digits: ") num = float(text)
without caring whether the user enters 一.一 or 1.1 or something else.
