My experience says that there are plenty of *reasons* for being
extremely cautious about using anything other than ASCII in programs,
(including (doc-)strings, to a lesser extrem.)

Just see the issues faced on this topic of curved quotes, and it is a
single case of Unicode use.

I'm all for modernization of Emacs, but this change just doesn't make
sense to me.
