If it's more than one codepoint, we could prefix with the length of the codepoint's name:
def __12CIRCLED_PLUS__(x, y): ...
That's a bit impractical, and why reinvent the wheel? I'd much rather:
def \u2295(x, y): ....
So readable I want to read it twice. And that's not legal python today so we don't break backwards compatibility!
Yes, but we're defining an operator for instances of the class, so it needs the 'special' method marking:
def __\u2295__(self, other):
Now *that's* pretty!
IMO it's essential that we add source code escapes. Imagine the one-liners this will allow!
def f(xs):\n\ttry:\n\t\treturn x.pop()\n\texcept ValueError\n\t\treturn None
Can we get this fix applied in Python 2.2 and up?
