I uploaded a new version. You can run


to see what's there. I added enough to be able to meet Richard's 
demands. Some in that list are a bit tricky, like

    hook     ȥ
    stroke     ø

because they are not really accents. The characters with hooks are not 
officially build from two characters. There is no composition info so I 
added that myself but in such a way that it doesn't interfere with 
regular input. There might be more exceptions that we need to deal with, 
but I just wait till someone bring it up (read: it's up to users to 
come with additional specs).
