Summary: [ab]using Unicode to create tragedy

mimic provokes:

* fun
* frustration
* curiosity
* murderous rage

It's inspired by this terrible idea floating around:
 MT: Replace a semicolon with a greek question mark in your
 friend's C# code and watch them pull their hair out over the syntax
   - Peter Ritchie (@peterritchie) November 16, 2014

There are many more characters in the Unicode character set that look,
to some extent or another, like others - homoglyphs. Mimic substitutes
common ASCII characters for obscure homoglyphs.

Fun games to play with mimic:

* Pipe some source code through and see if you can find all of
 the problems
* Pipe someone else's source code through without telling them
* Be fired, and then killed
