Python will let you do this. You can declare the encoding of the
source file and from there use, for example, UTF-8 as your native
encoding. It does not let you declare identifiers outside the US ASCII
For example (sorry, I'm on a text mailer right now that doesn't let me
put Unicode into the message),
# -*- coding: utf-8
myString = u"<some UTF-8>"
defines myString to be be a Unicode string constructed from the UTF-8
sequence in quotes.
If you just wanted the UTF-8 bytes,
myUTF8String = "<some UTF-8"
There are several Common LISP implementations that offer full Unicode
support, including support for Unicode-encoded function names.
