"source code should ONLY contain printable ASCII characters" — try telling that (in 2020, where every mainstream high-level language already supports Unicode) to any developer who works and comments in a non-Latin-alphabet language.

Lol well yeah okay then, with the exception then of literal strings (texts) ... but you could argue that those texts should be in a separate bundle, rather than in the source code itself ... and let's not start using non-ASCII characters in variable/function names please ... I say programmers know English and stick to it (within their source code, at least)

Well I think we can all agree that you shouldn't use tabs (nor spaces) inside variable names! 😂
