Great work on the emoji branch; looking forward to be able to reach 🤪
with "C-x 8 e s zany" instead of "C-x 8 RET one big M-DEL large" 🙌

My current UX for emoji browsing is C-x 8 RET *PATTERN; with
icomplete-vertical-mode, it feels pretty similar to your emoji-search
AFAICT.  One nifty thing about C-x 8 RET is that it shows the actual
characters next to the candidate completions; cf. read-char-by-name and

Would it make sense to do something similar with emoji-search?

(I've tried to tweak the call to completing-read in emoji--choose-emoji
to get something similar to read-char-by-name's annotations, but my
command over the completion machinery is as yet insufficient 😵‍💫)
