Actually, it'd be \U10FFFF, no need for 8 digits.

Java doesn't support surrogates yet, so what Java does for \u doesn't make
any difference. :)

\U10FFFF should expand to either one character in UCS-4, or two characters
in UTF-16/UCS-2.
No particular reason why it can't work for 2.0. This is similar to the UTF-8
issue wrt surrogates.
