Interesting idea!  Instead of a character to print information about
it.  But is it possible to print full information about a character
which will allow the user to identify it easily and unambiguously?

Character names from the Unicode data file would be ideal, but this
file is not distributed with Emacs.

M-: and edebug also need a method of switching the character format.
