Re: [PATCH] Unicode Lisp reader escapes

    Support for \u and \U in Emacs Lisp would be good since other _Lisp_ 
    support \uXXXX and \UXXXXXXXX as well.  But other Lisp languages support
    also Lisp notation for Unicode characters.  I think Emacs should support
    it too.  In this notation Unicode characters are written as #\u3042 or
    #\u0002a6b2 with the leading hash mark.

We do not in general try to be compatible with Common Lisp on input
syntax for characters.  So forget this.

    Also it would be good to support a syntax for named Unicode characters.
    Common Lisp has the syntax #\euro_sign, and Perl - \N{EURO SIGN}.

I tend to think we should not do this now.
Does Emacs have a table of these names?
