    C-x 8 RET * dotless TAB TAB

    brings up a completions buffer containing all unicode character names
    matching "DOTLESS" -- including LATIN SMALL LETTER DOTLESS I.

That is trying to do this job, but using completion as the interface
is inconvenient.  I don't want to have to navigate that buffer by
typing TAB.  I am not sure what the * does, and I would never have
thought of typing it.

It takes a long time for the buffer to appear.  Perhaps that is
inevitable, but having it happen in the middle of things was

C-x 8 RET TAB generated a buffer listing all these characters,
but it took almost 30 seconds, and did not make the buffer current.
Is there a faster way to generate such a list?  A command to generate
that list and make it current -- not via the completion mechanism -- would
be much more convenient.

I'd rather have it ordered by languages than alphabetically.
