It depends on the nationality and habits of the programmer. In my
own case, most of my Python files have plenty of non-ASCII characters,
either in comments or strings, and hopefully one of these days, in Python
identifiers as well, there is a misery in using bad French for them...
And even for those Python files I write in English for being available
to a wider community, there is usually my name somewhere in the source,
including a cedilla. And that cedilla is worth the `coding' clause!
I'm pretty sure there are still many people outside United States :-)
