Allow accents in block names

Use case or problem

  1. I would like to be able to name blocks using letters with accent, such a é, è, ä, ü, etc. For the moment ^allonge is a valid block name whereas ^allongé is not.
  2. Spanish, French, German, are widespread languages and they use accents. The current restriction forces one to write incorrect words and produces ambiguity : allonge is a conjugated verb, whereas allongé is a past participle.
  3. Tags currently support letters with accents; I suppose there must be a technical reason why this is not true of blocks.

Proposed solution

Either target a few widespread languages that use accents, or find a way to allow all letters of the Latin alphabet with all possible accents – I don’t have enough knowledge of Unicode to know if this massive extension of permitted characters would be easy to implement.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
