In general, fine, but arch already declares some characters off-limits itself.  
As far as I know, I can't use letters like ĉ in it.  I can escape braces from 
the shell, but I have to transliterate for arch.  It just seemed an odd choice 
to use common special characters when there wasn't a need to.  Also note that I 
wasn't saying anything about completion.  I don't much use completion anyway.
