Unicode procedure names

Hello all!

I was recently looking into Perl 6 and noticed a very neat feature
about it: Unicode operators! That is, it makes use of some Unicode
symbols to offer alternatives to awkward or verbose ASCII notation.
For instance, ‘>=’ and ‘<=’ may just as well be written as ‘≥’ and
‘≤’, respectively. [1] And ‘∈’ checks whether an item is an element
of a list. [2] [3]

Now, I don't know if this is something you think would be nice to have
baked into Guile, but I really liked the idea, and thought to share it
in the case you would, too (and have't thought of it yet). :)

And perhaps of other structures? Haven't ever delved into the language.
