I hadn't realized that bash already supports Unicode in function names!

With this terrible patch:

   Clarification, please, but it looks like with your
patch below, Unicode in variable names might be fairly close
to being achieved?  Seeing how it was done for functions,
gave you insight into how variables could be done, yes?

Why do you call it "terrible"?
   Does this mean it might not be unreasonable to
add unicode support in varnames (dependent on
further testing and solving of found problems, like
compound assignments)?

   Good catch on seeing and "getting" the comment
that it was supported in funcnames (and thanks to
PePa for mentioning it!).  This could be very cool! :-)
