The input method build in to libX11 will, if Multi_key is associated
with any of the physical keys, preempt Emacs; Emacs will only see the
results of the compose sequences.

Simimarly, at the linux kernel console (at least), the Compose key
sequences are all handled by the kernel code; Emacs never sees the
Compose key itself.
