It requires changes to transient.el to work, unfortunately.

I thought we put all the fun stuff in lisp/play/, whether it's a game or
not.  Like handwrite.el and morse.el.  And it's not a mode, so textmodes
seemed like an odd place to put it?  And it didn't seem to fit in any of
the other categories, either.

But I have no opinion here, really -- putting it anywhere's fine by me.

These commands need to have a keystroke, though.  I think people who use
them will be using them a lot, so there should be a default keymap
placement for them.  There's three commands now -- emoji-insert
(graphical/category choosing), emoji-search (textual based on names) and
emoli-list (one big buffer of emojis).

So...  er...  off the top of my head...

C-x 8 e e
C-x 8 e s
C-x 8 e l

`C-x 8' because that's where `C-x 8 RET' is.  Or...  is there a more
likely place for insertion commands?  Uhm...  `C-x g'.  🤔💥
