Ok there are different usage cases.
So in short without going into detail,
for example if I need to type in a unicode
string literal in ASCII editor I would find such notation
replacement beneficial for me:


Printing could be the same I suppose.
I use Python 2.7. And printing so
with numbers instead of non-ASCII would help me see
where I have non-ASCII chars. But I think the print
behavior must be easily configurable.

Any critics on it? Besides not following the unicode consortium.
Also I would not even mind fixed width 7-digit decimals actually.
Ugly but still for me better than hex.
