You can skip to the *Messages* buffer, kill 3 of the 4
representations, and do C-x 8 RET C-y if the ?\N{...} isnʼt there,
which I think is shorter. Of course, since this is all about the
output from "C-x =", you could just copy the character you already
have in the buffer :-)

That I canʼt deny. Iʼll add in (info "(elisp) General Escape Syntax") in
my next patch ;-)
