Parrot lexicals won't accept unicode identifiers

Lexicals in Parrot don't seem to be able to accept unicode identifiers. Here's a test program:

$ cat x.pir
.sub main :main
    $P0 = box 'hello world'
    .lex unicode:"$\u03b2\u03bf\u03bf", $P0

    $P1 = find_lex unicode:"$\u03b2\u03bf\u03bf"
    say $P1

$ ./parrot x.pir
error:imcc:syntax error, unexpected USTRINGC, expecting STRINGC ('unicode:"$\u03b2\u03bf\u03bf"')
        in file 'x.pir' line 3

It's possible that all that is needed is to update imcc to accept USTRINGC for lexical names instead of simply STRINGC.

This fix is needed for Rakudo -- see RT #64878 .
