It might be difficult to pair them up.  For example, the code point
for the latin-1 character that looks like "3/4" is the same as the
code point for the latin-9 character that looks like Y with two dots
on top.  So one is a letter and the other is a nonletter.

Is it really a problem to have the duplication between Latin-1 and
Latin-9?  In the long run (after Emacs changes to Unicode internally)
it would be good to make the distinction go away.  But in the
meantime, Latin-1 and Latin-2 also share a lot of characters, yet
the input methods are separate.

Silence is foo!
