Another issue is text wrapping: M-q on a docstring containing these escape 
sequences will break lines in a way that will look ugly when viewing the 
rendered docstring:

    "Use Greek capital letters (\u[GREEK CAPITAL LETTER ALPHA]
  \u[EN DASH]\u[GREEK CAPITAL LETTER OMEGA]) to denote figures."

will be rendered as

    "Use Greek capital letters (Α–
  Ω) to denote figures."

which isn't right.
