The reason why the output is similar except for latin is
that I have implemented a special handler only for latin.
As I wrote, some other scripts (han, hangul, various Indic,
etc) should have their own handlers.

Sure.  That's another reason to have special handlers for
them.  For han, for instance, instead of generating the full
list at once, just showing radicals at first, then,
expanding each radical on mouse clicking, may be efficient.

Creating buttons for each character naively is also slow.
It may be good if there's a way to create a help-echo on the

Really?  When I tested it, it was almost instant.
