limited access to system settings. And in those kinds of corporate environments, you're not going to be working with any code but code written in-house. Which means that nobody is going to be using Latin-1, and everyone will be using the ASCII synonyms. What's the problem?
My experience is that this isn't true: we use lots of external code, but I still need to file requests with IT to get system-settings changed.
That said, I have no objection to Latin-1 sigils. So it's only your argument that's bogus, not the conclusion ;-).
