<esc>-x ucs-i<tab><ret>gree<tab>sm<tab>l<tab>ep<tab> w<tab>o<tab>

works quite well if you don't use it very often.  I shall miss the
shorthand of ucs-i when ucs-insert is fully replaced by insert-char.

I switch a lot between UK, Thai, Tai Tham and IPA keyboards (the latter
three defined in Emacs), but I find the abbreviated commands set-i and
toggle-inp much easier for switching keyboards than trying to
remember the various shortcuts.

One of the issues with using the full set of Unicode characters is that
many are easily misread when there are no constraints.  Many Greek
capitals look just like Roman capitals, and Latin 'o', Greek 'ο' and
Cyrillic 'о' may be indistinguishable.  This is not a good idea for
writing code.

Richard.
