[ paraphrased from a LWN letter to the editor ]

Regarding the note posted here last week about Perl development stopping
cuz Larry can't figure out any more characters to place after the '$'
character (to create "special" things) ...

Note that Larry became interested in Unicode a few years ago...

Note that Perl now supports Unicode throughout... *including* variable

Coincidence? I think not!

$\uAB56 = 1;
