On the other hand, if we try to use non-ascii chracters in
i.e function names, it still doesn't work as expected.
Does indeed give a compile time error. Sadly enough we need to
qoute the function name (which is an atom)
And now it get so ugly so that in my opinion it's better to stick
with ascii-chars in the source code.
