latin-unity provides this (but basically only for Latin scripts).  I
don't think it works under GNU Emacs, and it's pretty crufty, but it's
all my code and is assigned to the FSF.  So if somebody wants to port/
improve, I'll be happy to answer questions.  NB: probably requires
Mule-UCS, although I imagine emacs-unicode has the necessary
facilities to build tables.

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/pack/xemacscvs checkout latin-unity
