I agree that it would be a nightmare if project A used presu instead of print everywhere, while project B used toon, etc. But non-ASCII identifiers are a good thing, because there are many places even in the English-speaking world even in Ugly America where people are used to such identifiers. I want to be able to use $Å for a variable representing angstroms, to see the constant Math::Trig::π in trig functions, to declare a sub Σ that does summations, etc etc. And even if those don’t come through in email properly, they make it through CVS/SVN commits and updates just fine. :)
