It's not localized (just like "X" isn't either), so this particular
issue should not arise.

But I agree that having non-ASCII characters in the source files is not
ideal. It's extended ASCII #253, but in practice "echo ² | hexdump -C"
gives me 0xc2 (in UTF-8). Because the symbol has different codepoints in
different charsets, this may cause it to render incorrectly at some point.

Any suggestions? Make it N_("X2") in the code, and put an xgettext note
to the translators saying that please render this as "X²"?
