Hi Leo,
the current version only supports combinations of two characters. It
is part of eev -
http://angg.twu.net/#eev
http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/eev.html
I sometimes give workshops on LaTeX for beginners, and I use Emacs and
eev in these workshops. When it comes to the point in which people
have to learn how to type unicode characters I prefer to teach the
trick that I've shown you - actually I start by its predecessor, that
doesn't have a "hash" in its filename; see below - first,
http://angg.twu.net/eev-current/eev-compose-hash.el.html
http://angg.twu.net/eev-current/eev-compose-hash.el
http://angg.twu.net/eev-current/eev-compose.el.html
http://angg.twu.net/eev-current/eev-compose.el
and only then I teach the basics of input methods. So these
"eev-compose"s are meant to be useful enough, simple enough - even for
the people who like to understand the source code -, extensible
enough, and a good starting point for learning input methods, and just
that. I use my eev-composes-hash for everything except Agda code and
emojis, but that's irrelevant...
Cheers, E.
