Alex, Rich made this comment on CLJ-17 in 2011: "Runtime validation off the table for perf reasons. cemerick's suggestion that arbitrary symbol support will render them valid is sound, but arbitrary symbol support is a different ticket/idea." I am not aware of any tickets that propose the enhancement of allowing arbitrary symbols to be supported by Clojure, e.g. via a syntax like
|white space and arbitrary #$@)$~))@ chars here|
Do you think it is reasonable to create an enhancement ticket for supporting arbitrary characters in symbols and keywords?
