Thanks for working on this. I'd like to avoid going back to the way it
was done before if possible because this means that all the
definitions of the Unicode characters are run through every time a
macro is used. The following patch seems to give good results:

but I want to understand what the point of the \edef was in the first
place, and what the point was of changing the catcode of backslash,
and test whether this is still necessary. Hopefully I'll get to this
