Both... this idea will only become none-absurd when unicode will become
as prevalent as ascii, i.e. unicode keyboards, universal support under
almost every application, and so on. Even if you can easly type it on
your macintosh, good luck using it while using said macintosh to ssh or
telnet to a remote server and trying to type unicode...
