Using non-ascii symbols

These were some interesting remarks, Terry.

I just asked myself how Chinese programmers feel about this. I don't 
know Chinese, but probably they could write a whole program using only 
one-character names for variables, and it would be still readable (at 
least for Chinese)... Would this be used or would they rather prefer to 
write in English on account of compatibilty issues (technical and human 
readability in international projects) or because typing these chars is 
more cumbersome than ascii chars? Any Chinese here?
