I don't understand why we don't just provide an interactive function and
let the users pick the keybinding they like.  IMHO this is completely
useless for many users (considering input methods exist for particular
languages and we've talked about stacking multiple input methods), and
essential for much fewer people (who need to enter arbitrary Unicode
characters by number).

Seems like a good suggestion to me if combined with Juri's latest suggestion.
