For editing buffers and strings, if it has a corresponding registered
charset which is known to Mule, just load a Unicode Consortium format
mapping file. If it's Unicode-only, you would create a new "private"
Mule charset, give them arbitrary code points, and use the mapping
functions in unicode.c that are exported to Lisp to explicitly map
them to Unicode.
Fonts must correspond to a registered charset for core X; since we
don't have a Unicode charset there's no easy way to display Unicode
fonts. If you have Xft support built in, then you'll get it
automatically in any font that supports the character.
