Sure, but it would be good to be able to just tell Isearch to ignore all accents
As opposed to having to type a regexp with each of the chars you want to
consider equivalent. Especially if you don't have a keyboard that makes
entering such chars trivial (vs using `insert-char' and providing Unicode names
or char codes, etc.).
Some users who are not in the habit of entering such chars will nevertheless
have a use case for searching text that contains them. Copying text off the Web
is one way that people end up with such text.
