Not strictly related to your RFC, but while we are at it: any chance to
broaden the set of characters accepted for the definition of custom
operators, possibly supporting UTF-8?

I understand this is a much more involved change and I do not know if
your camlp4 related changes affected the ocaml lexer support for
non-ascii characters, but someone had to ask this :-)

Cheers.
