While I agree it's a bad idea to use symbols that can't be readily
typed as part of the language syntax, I think Terry's broader point
that anything which *can* be implemented outside the core usually
*should* be implemented outside the core (at least as a
proof-of-concept) is a good one.

AFAIU this *really* looks like a bad idea. I don't even understand why would anyone want to do such a thing.
