It would be neat if the UnicodeSyntax? extension supported the Unicode "—" EM DASH (U+2014) character as an alternative for the "--" single-line comment introduction character sequence.
One possible objection I can anticipate is that its use could be confusing when using a monospace font, but it seems unjust to let that hold back those of us who have liberated ourselves from monospace. :-)
