I'd rather have autocompletion for my variable names (cue someone
telling me that this already works in DrScheme and I just don't know
how to use it). The fact that the unicode commands are consistent
across TeX, Emacs, and DrScheme is enough even without the
autocompletion since most of the names are pretty reasonable.
