debug code written in a language like Sinhalese.

Also I think that makes it too easy for someone to obscure a damaging
line of code simply by switching to a unicode font and hence making it
unreadable to 90% of the people who may be debugging it.
And finally, I'm not so sure Kwrite can handle Unicode (it may, I've
never really looked), but thats where I do over 90% of my scripting.
