|I like the \Uxxxxxx escape instead of \u{}.  Would you consider this, Matz?

Actually I hate counting digits.  When I am forced to put sufficient
number of preceding zeros to specify non-BMP character, I'd go mad.
Is there any reason \U<8ditits> is better than \u{}?  If it's
sufficient reason, it's OK to allow \U as well.
