Hi Leo,

many many many years ago I tried to add my own characters to existing
input methods, failed miserably, and wrote my own way to do that - in
which if I typed `M-, char1 char2' the two chars would be "composed"
using a table that was easy to edit, and the result would be inserted.
In june of this year I rewrote my definition for `M-,' to make it
support compose tables written in a better format, and it became this:

The new version can also generate definitions for these characters in
a format that lualatex accepts,

and in a format that pdflatex accepts:

If you can't make the standard ways work, get in touch! =)
