Yes.  It is the choosing of a subset (e.g. by language or other
category) that is currently missing, in particular.  Add that and
you can use `apu.el' for the display, choosing chars to insert,
get more info about, etc.

`apu.el' has a few ways to filter characters now, but filtering by
language etc. would be helpful.  And as Eli has mentioned before
(off list), better (quicker) than filtering the Unicode set would
be constructing only the needed subset.

Anyway, you can play with `apu.el', to see what it offers now.
