I don't like it for a similar reason: how do we explain it to new
users?  Would we have to force them to use only selected text editors?
Also, one of design principles for lily syntax was "only ASCII
characters" or sth like that.  I really think it's a good principle.
We may support those unicode-hyphens in addition to an ASCII command.
