Well I found it less hm flashy than quail sort of more reliable, but for
example I don't know how to enhance it including œ.

That is NOT my experience, I had to have add
# -*-coding: iso-8859-15;-*-
At the beginning of the buffer.
Using GNU emacs 23 and Xemacs 21.4.21 Mule
Anyhow this problem seems to me minor, I much more concerned about the
babel problem, that is: somehow, in modes other than fundamental the
coding gets screwed up.

Well another problem with 21.5 is it is not part of any Debian (Ubuntu) based
distribution as far as I know.
Concerning latin-unity, one problem was the saving to utf8.
Again having put that coding string at the beginning of the buffer
solved the writing/reading problem.
