It supports them right now - try setting the locale to a UTF-8 locale and
"cat > À". You now have a file with a name in Unicode. As for the job being
done, [0-9] sounds better. Even if the device names stop being in Unicode,
they won't go to non-Arabic numerals, and it's questionable whether we
would want to strip those numbers out if they are there.
