I also assume 'not', unless someone can present a valid use case
for delaying the \c till inside the interpolation.  I don't think
the definition of Unicode changes so rapidly that we need to assume
dynamic definitions for character names.  :)

In any case, one can always interpolate a closure to force late
evaluation of a symbolic representation via any function of one's
choosing.  This doesn't seem like something that will occur
frequently enough to need rehuffmanization.
