Hmmm... I'm fairly certain ANSI/ISO C++ doesn't allow international
characters in identifiers.  In "Design and Evolution of C++" (written just
before the official standardization of C++), Bjarne made it very clear
that he was against using international characters in identifiers, and
explained why, and stated that is why they aren't allowed.  So unless some
change occurred at the last minute, I'm pretty sure international
characters aren't allowed as identifiers in ANSI/ISO C++.
