For Unicode in comments and strings, I don't see why it we'd need a
flag.  We might want to copy gcc's -fextended-identifiers option,
though, because I'm not sure such constructs will actually work
correctly. gcc generates and binutils accepts assembler constructs
like "call ιΆ¨", but llvm-gcc doesn't generate ABI-compatible code, and
I'm not sure what other toolchains do.
