OK, I'll omit that patch.

We still have a problem with Emacs Lisp code containing confusable characters
that can make the code exceedingly hard to review. These characters are
currently not caught or checked by anything. We really should do better.

The following should be unintrusive and not too hard: Let the reader push all confusable symbols (i.e. symbols that contain at least one unescaped character from the Unicode confusables list that maps to a sequence of ASCII characters) onto an internal dynamic variable. The byte compiler can then emit warnings if that variable becomes non-nil.
