    I think we should do that only for those languages that can't be shown
    in the menu.  Since this depends on a complex interaction of platform,
    fonts and locales, I think the programmer wanting to put something
    into a menu can't be reasonably expected to make a guess.

    So I think that we should add something like
    (defun menu-string-supported-p STRING &optional DISPLAY)
    that will tell a programmer whether a given platform is supposed to
    be able to display a given string.

This might be ok in theory, but I'd rather do something simpler.
