That is the impression I have. I'll check out the
emacs-unicode branch and report.
What I mean is, we have the following functions and variables:
Functions and Macros:
char-to-unicode - Convert character to Unicode codepoint.
i default-unicode-precedence-list - Return the default precedence list used
for Unicode decoding.
i language-unicode-precedence-list - Return the language-specific
precedence list used for Unicode decoding.
i load-unicode-mapping-table - Load Unicode tables with the Unicode
mapping data in FILENAME for CHARSET.
b load-unicode-tables - Initialize the Unicode translation
tables for all standard charsets.
i set-default-unicode-precedence-list - Set the default precedence list
used for Unicode decoding.
i set-language-unicode-precedence-list - Set the language-specific
precedence of charsets in Unicode decoding.
i set-unicode-conversion - Add conversion information between
Unicode codepoints and characters.
i unicode-precedence-list - Return the precedence order among
charsets used for Unicode decoding.
i unicode-to-char - Convert Unicode codepoint to character.
Variables and Constants:
load-unicode-tables-at-dump-time - [INTERNAL] Whether to load the Unicode
tables at dump time.
I don't want to have a different set of functions in GNU Emacs that we then
have to support.
