A few days ago you said it could use char-displayable-p
to determine this.  If that works, it solves the problem of finding out
which characters to display as diamond.

As for how, it would be asy to add a variable whose value should be a
vector containing integers, or a single-byte string, saying what to
send.  This will be adequate for a Linux console, and it doesn't need
to handle anything else.
