the original suggestion was a unicode -ǝ or -Ǝ

That was a joke, right? I don't know about you but there's no way that I'm going to be able to find the codepoint for that symbol and then work out the right combination of keys to press to generate it for any given combination of keyboard+shell+term+OS in a shorter space of time than it takes to type -Mstrict -w

    Quite (I had to cheat and use the OS X Symbol menu to get them when I typed them above and it still took a minute to scroll to the E's). I think later in the thread saner (or perhaps, less facetious) heads were prevailing and going over free ASCII option characters and maybe -[Zz] being available.
