C-x 8 may be a good replacement for iso-acc, iso-insert, iso-swed.

That is useless in practice, because it requires users to know these
long and often obscure names.  When I wanted to do this, I was unable
to do it with C-x 8.  I was totally stumped!  All I could do was try
to find a file which had the character I wanted.

We need a way to enter any Unicode character that is EASY to use
and does not require using its official name.
