Thanks. I think "the ^^ stuff" is actually quite useful, especially when
debugging international documents. Especially when the glyphs come from
a language you are not used to, it is quite nice to just have a hex
representation without needing pecial editors and ^^ is the only way to get
that without introducing actual changes to behavior.

I had another issue with the latest luametatex:

The following document:

\def\mymacro#1 bc{}
{\mymacro a b bc}

used to work and lead to no output. But in the new luametatex version,
it complains about "! Argument of \mymacro has an extra }" as if it
doesn't see the " bc" argument delimiter.
